Beginning December 4 and lasting through the end of the year, drive or walk along on Holly Ave, beginning at Blue Springs Ave and ending at University Ave, to view the Christmas lights! 


Santa through the Neighborhoods

In a partnership with the North Pole, the Orange City Fire Department has made arrangements for Santa to make an appearance in Orange City neighborhoods from December 4 through December 6. Due to his hectic schedule, Santa will not stop but will drive by waving and wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. Santa will begin his journey each night at 5:30 p.m. and end at approximately 7:00 pm. Merry Christmas from the Orange City Council and the Orange City Fire Department!

Due to the size of the fire truck, Santa will only be visiting certain streets within the city limits of Orange City.  A complete list of streets is below.
