Waterloo Santa Float rides Dec. 14-23


The Santa Float will again make its way through Waterloo, bringing holiday cheer to all Dec. 14-23.

A color-coded map is available at waterloo.il.us/our-community/santa-float that shows which areas are covered each night. There are also turn-by-turn route directions to see at what point along the route the float is traveling.

There is also a Santa Tracker available so everyone at home can follow Santa on his route each night. 

The float heads out at 5 p.m. each evening and will be led by a city vehicle with red and green flashing lights and a loudspeaker, so you know Santa is close by. 

Santa has a treat for all children who come out to see him. Each night, there will be three golden tickets hidden amongst the treats. If you are lucky enough to find one, bring it to Waterloo City Hall at 9 a.m. Dec. 24 to receive a gift from Santa. 

Only children ages 13 and under are eligible.
