Ladder Truck over Crowd 2

About the Event

Jingle Bell Drop
November 16

Join us for “Jingle Bell Drop” on Thursday, November 16.  This event is to help kick off our “Jingle in the Junction” series, held on November 30, December 7 and December 14 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm

Led by the Betty Hill Dancers, Santa and his elves will arrive at 6:00 pm on the vintage West Des Moines Fire Department truck. Following a short holiday dance performance, Santa will climb into the fire bucket truck, and rise above the crowd at 5th and Maple Streets. Santa, along with his elves on neighboring buildings will gently throw 500 ‘jingle bells’ into the crowd. Green are for and must be redeemed by children, and red are for adults. These must be redeemed at the Veridian Credit Union prize tent, located near 4th and Maple Streets. Each recipient will receive a prize envelope, which lists their prize and pickup location.

We will also have strolling carolers and performers, holiday food vendors, Professor VonAir balloon art and visits with Santa. The businesses in Historic Valley Junction and the streets will be lined with over 250,000 twinkling lights. Join us Thursday from 6-8 pm for our fun holiday rah-rah!

Thank you to our generous sponsor:
