Home Fun Fun Stuff To Do Watch the Waterskiing Santa from Home!

Watch the Waterskiing Santa from Home!

Every Christmas Eve at 1 p.m., Santa and a merry band of holiday friends zoom along the Potomac River delighting crowds along the sea wall in Alexandria. In 2020, Santa snuck in his river spectacle early, recording it so that he would not attract crowds along the riverfront.

You can still catch Santa, Mrs. Claus, reindeer, elves and the Grinch on Christmas Eve at 1 p.m., but there’s no need for bundling up—you can watch from the comfort of you own home! So stay home, get some hot chocolate and popcorn and cozy up while watching the Waterskiing Santa!

The holiday spectacular has been going on since 1986 when a group of friends drew straws to see who would go out and water ski in a Santa Claus suit on Christmas Eve. The loser did exactly that, and decided he would do it again the next year. While he technically lost the bet, he definitely won it for the sake of children and families alike. It continues today, after more than 30 years.

Head here for more winter break fun!
