Santa Float Information
The Santa Float is a time honored tradition for the Cities of Neenah and Menasha. Off duty firefighters from Local 275 volunteer their time to help Santa make his rounds.
The Santa Float is funded by Local 275 and donations from local businesses and citizens from the Cities of Neenah and Menasha. Local 275 would like to thank Bruce Levenhagen from Neenah Standard for donating all of the fuel for the float this year.
Local 275 Firefighters have been asking for donations to replace the generator on the float. We've had issues the past couple of years where the current generator is overheating and we've had to stop, shut the float down to let it cool off, and then start it back up again to finish the route. We would like to thank the following people for donating money towards a new generator. Stone Toad, Michiels Menasha Inn, Galloway Company, Kevin McCann,Wichmann Funeral Home/Laemerich Chapel and Watters Plumbing. We have $750 of the $2,000 we need. Hopefully, we are able to get enough donations to purchase a new generator before we begin our route. If you would like to send a donation to help us purchase a new generator, please send this to:

Due to the increased growth both Cities have experienced, Santa is not able to visit every street within both Cities every year. Therefore, an every other year route has been established for streets within both Cities.
Santa begins his route every night at 5:30 p.m. and depending upon weather conditions it takes him 2 - 2 1/2 hours to complete his route.
