Help sought for Santa Float

The Santa Float is once again set to make its rounds through Waterloo this upcoming Christmas season.

With the City of Waterloo, Sister Cities of PortaLoo and Waterloo Chamber of Commerce again joining forces, the Santa Float will make nightly rides through the community Dec. 14-23.

Volunteers will be wrapping 3,600 candy bars with coupons from Papa Vito’s and Sonic. For added excitement, three candy bars each night will again contain a special “golden ticket,” which is redeemable for a prize from Santa at City Hall on Christmas Eve.

Any businesses, individuals, churches or service organizations wishing to make a donation toward this community effort may do so by Dec. 1 by making checks payable to Sister Cities of PortaLoo and mail to 19 Victor Street, Waterloo. 

The route schedule for this year’s float is available at
