Waterloo Santa Float runs Dec. 14-23

The annual Waterloo Santa Float travels the streets of town Dec. 14-23, spreading holiday cheer and handing out treats to children.

The float leaves at 5 p.m. each evening and will be led by a City of Waterloo vehicle with red and green flashing lights, so you know Santa is close by. 

A Santa Tracker is also available online for realtime location of the float by visiting waterloo.il.us/our-community/santa-float.

Each night, there will be three golden tickets hidden amongst the treats. If you are lucky enough to find one, bring it to City Hall at 9 a.m. Dec. 24 to receive a prize from Santa. Only children ages 13 and under are eligible to win prizes.
