Santa Visits Ely!

Ely, Iowa


Santa messaged the folks at the Ely Fire Department and told them that this year he thought it would be better if he saw everyone from a safe distance. The fire fighters agreed and will help Santa swap his sleigh for a fire truck on Friday, December 18th. Look to see Santa riding on a fire engine with lights ablaze, bells ringing and accompanied by an occasional blast from the siren. Santa has helped plan a route that will include many of the streets in Ely and he will begin making his way thru town at 6:00pm.

Because of the pandemic, Santa will not be able to stop, pose for individual pictures or give out or accept anything and Santa asks onlookers to remember to follow proper COVID-19 measures, including mask wearing and social distancing.

Children who would like to write letters to Santa can drop them off at The Downtown Dachshund.

Please note that no events with Santa will be taking place at the fire station this year.
