Santa Claus is Coming to Town—on a Motorcycle

With help from Montgomery County police, Santa will ride from Germantown to the Children’s Inn in Bethesda to deliver gifts to sick kids.

As part of a charitable effort by Montgomery County police, a motorcycle-riding St. Nick—flanked by 20 of Montgomery County’s finest—will carry donated gifts to Children’s Inn in Bethesda on Wednesday.

Santa’s “sleigh” ride begins in Germantown at 10 a.m. at the District 5 station in Germantown then makes two stops — Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce on Clopper Road and Sheehy Ford on Frederick Road.

Santa plans to lunch at Vince & Dominics Pizzeria in Bethesda.

The motorcade is expected to reach Children’s Inn by 5:30 p.m., just in time for a party.

Part of the National Institutes of Health, Children’s Inn is a nonprofit facility that offers lodging for children receiving treatment at NIH and their families.

Police are still accepting donations of gift cards to help families who need to buy food and supplies during their time at Children’s Inn. You can also make a donation at the Children’s Inn at NIH website by clicking “Ways to Give,” entering your information, and indicating that you are giving in response to the “Santa Police Ride.”
