Get ready for a Santa Claus parade in Youngstown.
The Youngstown Volunteer Fire Co. announced this week it will hold a Santa Claus parade starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 19, in neighborhoods and adjoining areas.
According to the fire company’s Facebook post, the parade will lead off from the firehall on Third Street and proceed down Elliott Street to Main Street. It will then head down Main Street to the Youngstown Estates neighborhood followed by Collingwood Estates.
From there, it will head back north on Main to Church Street, proceed on Church out to Blairville toward Creek Road, where it will turn down Balmer Road to the mobile home park on the 900 block. The parade will then continue out to Lutts Road, proceed on Lutts Road to Youngstown-Lockport Road, and head west to Elm Street.
It continues on Elm to Oak Street to Westwood Drive, to Northfield Drive, then Northfield to Brampton Road to Applewood Drive, before continuing down to Oak Street toward Third Street.
At Third, it will head to Hinman Street to Main Street to the Lockport Street intersection. It will then continue out Lockport Street to Glenvale Avenue, to Brookshire Drive, to Williams Street, up Main Street to Chestnut Street, to Carrollwood Drive, to Wingate Avenue and back around to Carrollwood and continue out Lake Street out to the north entrance of Fort Niagara State Park by the pool parking lot.
“Listen for the sirens and come out to wave and see Santa and his friends – the Youngstown Lions!,” YVFC said in its Facebook post.
Residents are reminded to remain socially distant and to wear a mask.
