The Spring Lake Park – Blaine – Mounds View Fire Department participates in at least 4 parades annually. Check back on this page for specific information regarding each parade as we get closer to the dates.

SBM Fire Santa Parade

SBM Fire Department annually plans and organizes our Santa Parade food shelf drive to collect non-perishable food for our local food shelves. Generally, this is the first week of December for four nights with routes spanning through the cites of Spring Lake Park, Blaine and Mounds View, covering 30 miles of city streets and interacting with thousands of residents, children, and guests from all around our area.


Follow us on our social media pages like Facebook & Instagram as well as our website for parade route updates each year as they do and can change from previous years as our coverage district continues to grow. We hope to see you in early December, come on out with your non-perishable food items and give Santa and Mrs. Claus a waive as they go by!
