The “Harundale Express” Santa Run
This was the first running of the Harundale Express! As many know the tour use to use the fire department and Santa would ride on top. Over the years and with the help of the ever popular ” Politically Correctness” and ” litigation World” the fire department was forced to make policy changes. These changes were to protect the fire department. Unfortunately our mission with the Santa Tout was lost in the mix and we decided to get back to what we wanted to do! So…. We started the Harundale Express project. Knowing that this was the first run we were aware that we would find issues to deal with ( very few) and we hope that this will only get better with time and be a long tradition to the community. Please see some pictures below with the build and the outcome as well as some of the run itself. If there are any pictures that were taken that turned out well and you would like to send them for possible addition to the page send and e-mail to us at Hopca@broadstripe.net Thank you!
Harundale Express run for 2017 will be December 16th (Rain Date 17th)
The express will start on that day at about 4 pm. We start on the West side of the community at Manor and Ashington and continue along that side of the Highway, South including the sections of Oakwood Park and the Plaza. we then cross over at Preston and continue North finishing out on Amberly.
Please understand that the entire run takes about 4 hours depending on the amount of kids and kids alike, traffic and road conditions. also there are several roads that are duplicated due to the one way aspects that we have. Listen for the noise of sirens and music and try to be waiting as much as possible but please know that if we get past you on one street just come over to the next one!!
We look forward to this run each year and hope that we see you out at the corners of your block.
I Hope that everyone had as much fun as we did seeing Santa come through the area!! We were able to get through every street ( some twice due to directional needs). There was an excellent turn out this year! If you have any photos feel free to share them through the email or the Blog page on this site.
