An Adventurous and Charitable Santa: New York City Fire Museum

As if the kids didn't already think New York’s Bravest were the bomb, now they can see NYC firefighters rescue Santa from the roof of the New York City Fire Museum! The annual Santa Rescue will take place on Sunday, December 3rd at 11:30 a.m. sharp.

The FDNY will rescue St. Nick from his perch on top of the museum; once he’s safely inside, the kids can pose for photos with him and let him know what they want to find under the tree. The performance is free, however admission to the event inside (which ends at 2 p.m., is $8 for adults and $5 for children ages two to 17. All proceeds benefit the Museum’s fire safety education program. Purchase tickets online, by phone or in the gift shop.
