Enjoy an evening of holiday cheer at Waukee's free, annual WinterFest celebration on Friday, Dec. 3 in the Downtown Triangle area. Waukee Triangle Businesses will host open houses beginning at 4 p.m. The rest of the festivities kick off at 6 p.m. sharp when Santa Claus and Waukee Mayor Courtney Clarke light the WinterFest tree!
After the tree lighting, kids can visit Santa at the Waukee Community Center. Guests can watch an ice sculptor create holiday pieces, enjoy free soup, hot cocoa and cookies, make art with the Waukee Area Arts Council, play mini-golf sponsored by Grace Baptist Church and take part in winter games and activities.
The Waukee Parks & Recreation Department has again partnered with Charter Bank to host the “Snowball Drop” event this year. Crews will drop hundreds of snowballs (table tennis balls) from above which children will retrieve and then redeem for a free book at Charter Bank’s downtown Waukee location. The Snowball Drop will be held on 6th Street between Walnut and Locust Streets at 6:30 p.m.
WinterFest attendees are encouraged to donate new, unwrapped toys or non-perishable food items to be distributed to those in need through Waukee Area Christian Services. Those items can be dropped off at the Waukee Community Center during WinterFest or at the Waukee Public Works Building (805 University Avenue) after WinterFest.
