Santa's Ride will stop at Bailey's Elementary School

Santa’s Ride will be stopping at Bailey’s Primary Elementary School on Dec. 15.

Every year, local law enforcement officers cruise by local elementary schools on motorcycles – some dressed in Santa outfits or as other winter characters – to collect donated toys for children at Fairfax Hospital and the Georgetown Lombardi Cancer Center.

Local residents are encouraged to donate new unwrapped toys, books, and games. Items can be dropped off at Bailey’s (6111 Knollwood Drive, Falls Church) and the Mason Police Station on Columbia Pike by 9 a.m.on Dec. 14.

Approximately 25 motor squad officers are expected at Bailey’s on Dec. 15 between 2:40 and 3:15 p.m. It’s one of eight schools on Santa’s Ride this year.

The Fairfax County Police Department, Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office, Falls Church Sheriff’s Office, Virginia State Police, Vienna Police Department, and City of Fairfax Police Department are all taking part in Santa’s Ride.

  1. Maybe someday Santa will come via Streetcar.

  2. Maybe someday Santa will come via clean-energy, non-pooping raindeers.

  3. Santa will only deliver gifts to boys and girls in Mason District who behaved this year and did not engage in criminal activities.
