A large event and one of the favorite events for many families in Hendricks County. Santa arrives aboard the Coatesville Fire Engine with lights and sirens blaring. Santa's entry kicks off the evening with a chili dinner prepared by your volunteer firefighters. All they ask is for a goodwill offering or donation for the food that works for you. There are a lot of cool items up for raffle(which you can purchase tickets for) and this is always a fun moment during the event as the anticipation builds up hoping your name will be called for that one item you really want. While dinner is going on, Santa sits in his rocking chair listening to what the children want for Christmas. They can event get their photo taken with Santa for a minimal charge. This is one of those events you don't want to miss.
