Santa Claus to ride fire truck around Charles City on Saturday

Santa Claus will be making an appearance in Charles City on Saturday, December 12th, from 11 a.m. to noon … on the back of a fire truck!

Due to the COVID-19 situation it is difficult for Santa to meet with kids at the Santa House in Central Park, so instead the Chamber and Fire Department are bringing Santa to the kids in a safe and fun way. He will be riding in the bucket of the aerial fire truck and waving as he passes throughout different neighborhoods in town (listen for the siren). 


The ride will begin on 9th Street at 11 a.m. and will finish up with a drive down Main Street.


Children will be able to Call Santa and talk to him that same day between 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12th, thanks to the Charles City Rotary Club. Call (319) 238-9922 to speak to Santa that afternoon.
