Just in case you missed Santa's surprise arrival (on a rocket ship) during the Holiday Hoopla kick-off celebration, you can also see him on select Thursdays and Saturdays at his workshop in downtown Cedar Falls. Plus, remember to bring your letter for Santa and drop it in his mailbox.

Help welcome Santa to Waverly on Saturday, December 3. Bring your wish list and a camera to capture priceless memories with the Jolly Ol’ Fella himself. Also, stop by the North Pole Party (1-3pm) prior to Santa’s arrival and write letters, listen to holiday music and mix-up your own special blend of reindeer food for Christmas Eve. And, be sure to visit Santa on Saturday, December 17 as he’ll have all of his reindeer with him too.
