A special note from the Newport Fire Department:

Parents, to be safe please make sure that your children are accompanied and that they greet Santa from the sidewalk and do not enter the roadway. Santa cant wait to see you all, but does not want any of the Citys children to get hurt. Keep your eyes and ears open for Santas approach on the dates listed for your area.
