‘Santa Float’ Spreads Holiday Cheer
The ‘Santa Float’ is a holiday tradition sponsored by the Spokane Valley Firefighters Local 876.
Each year, off-duty firefighters travel through Valley neighborhoods in a large, colorful “Float” complete with holiday music and Santa Claus. The float travels during the evening hours and stops for Santa to give away treats and gifts to children.
Check out the 2017 schedule* to see if the Santa Float is coming to your neighborhood! Ho. Ho. Ho!
