Santa comes to town!

Engine 19-3, the 1923 Ahrens-Fox engine, brings the jolly fat man to town every year on the day after Thanksgiving. This year was no different.

Santa arrived in Doylestown Borough Friday night, riding on the fire company’s 1923 Ahrens-Fox fire engine, complete with elves!

The annual event, sponsored by the Doylestown Business and Community Alliance, draws hundreds of people to the center of town for the big arrival. This year was no exception, as the warmer weather made for a perfect night.

Santa was guided into town by the Central Bucks West marching band. The CB West Choir sang holiday standards for the crowd as they waited for the jolly old elf.

The DBCA’s army of festive volunteers served free cider and cookies to the crowd.

The crowning moment of the evening was the tree lighting.
