Our Santa Float is a time-honored tradition that is made possible exclusively by off-duty firefighters from Local 275 who volunteer their time to help Santa make his rounds in the Cites of Neenah and Menasha. All costs associated with this float are made possible entirely through donations from, Neenah-Menasha Firefighter’s Local 275 Charitable Foundation, local businesses and citizens from the Cities of Neenah and Menasha.
We are asking for financial support for the operating costs associated with the float along with continuous improvements and updates. There are two ways to do this.
You can donate online through our Go Fund Me page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/gxkjh5-santa-float
Otherwise, you can send us a check to:

We would like to thank Bruce Levenhagen from Levenhagen Oil/Neenah Standard for his continued support of our Santa Float by donating all of the fuel we use to operate for the float for all ten nights. We are extremely grateful for this generous donation!
Covid-19 calls within our two Cities remain high. Our firefighters are doing everything they can to keep themselves healthy and limit their exposures so they can continue to come to work and respond to calls. With these precautions our cases of staff infected with Covid-19 have been minimal. However, if an increase of cases begins, and our staffing levels decrease because of this, we may have to cancel the float.
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.
You can learn more about the history of the Santa Float on our Santa Float History page.
Santa will be making his way through the Cities of Neenah and Menasha on Monday, November 30, 2020 through Friday, December 11, 2020.
