Chelan’s schedule adjusted to accommodate students; Manson’s is unchanged

Information released

Santa will continue his weekly Neighborhood Tours this afternoon as he cruises through the valley to greet kids from his perch on the back of a vintage fire truck (the sleigh is getting pre-Christmas trip maintenance). Kids of all ages are encouraged to wave from their windows or from the sidewalk to greet Jolly Ole’ St. Nick. You will know he is coming when you see the flashing lights and occasional blast of sirens from his entourage.

Please note the schedule change:

Now that school is in session, Santa is adjusting his Chelan start times on Fridays to 4 p.m. so he doesn’t miss anyone who may still be on their way home. The change begins today (12/4) as he prepares to visit neighborhoods in South Chelan, Apples Acres and Chelan Falls.

Parades scheduled for Saturdays in the Manson area will remain at 3 p.m. start times. (see map below)

Santa’s Neighborhood Parade is just one of the events planned in the Lake Chelan Valley between now and January 1st. For additional information about all the ways you can celebrate safely this season, visit

This collaborate holiday event is made possible by the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, Historic Downtown Chelan Association, Manson Chamber of Commerce and Lake Chelan Wine Valley.

Chelan Route: Friday, December 4th

Manson Route: Saturday, December 5th
