The Santa Float Rides Again!

Last night, we kicked off a hallowed annual tradition, the Manhattan Beach Santa Float! The float went out for almost four hours last night on its first route, visiting hundreds of families in Manhattan Beach.

If you're a longtime Manhattan Beach resident, you know that the Float has been a tradition since the 1950s and you've eagerly awaited its arrival this holiday season. If you're new to the city, please check out the website and go to the Routes Page to find out when we'll be in your neighborhood. On the night that we're nearby, check out the Santa Tracker, which follows Santa's progress through the city in real time.

All routes begin at 4:45pm and we try to get to as many houses as we can. If we're a little early or a little late, we apologize. We're staffed by volunteers and we try to make the experience great for the kids, so we're not always perfect when it comes to timing.

Thank you to all of you who come out and participate! See you on the sleigh!
