Santa Float

The Santa Float will again make its way through Waterloo, bringing gifts and holiday cheer to all! However, you may notice a few changes to this beloved tradition, as Harry Wolf and Barbara Johnson, founders of the Waterloo Santa Float, have decided to retire. The City of Waterloo, Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and The Sister Cities of Porta Loo, with the help of many continued donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations, have come together to make sure this tradition will continue.

Check out the schedule below to find out when Santa and his elves will be in your neighborhood.

2017 Santa Float Route Map

The float heads out at 5pm each evening and will be led by a City of Waterloo vehicle with red and green flashing lights and a loudspeaker, so you know Santa is close by. Santa has a treat for all who come out to see him, even your pooch!
