The Manhattan Beach Santa Float, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Manhattan Beach, is a beloved Manhattan Beach tradition. Each weeknight, Santa travels through town on his sleigh, stopping mid-block to greet children and families. A variety of different community groups assist Santa throughout his travels.

On the night Santa is in your neighborhood, don't forget to watch for him via the Santa Tracker. It goes live every night at 4:45 on days when Santa is traveling around town.

The float was refurbished two years ago, thanks to the Leadership Manhattan Beach Class of 2017. The leadership group raised funds and contributed to structural repairs and new design enhancements for the float. Santa's elves also worked with the Manhattan Beach Unified School District to equalize the routes, based on the district’s neighborhood data.

The Kiwanis Club is accepting donations for upkeep and maintenance to help the club keep the Santa float tradition alive. Find more information about how to donate here.
