This is our third Christmas season in Waukee and our third time visiting the Waukee WinterFest! The annual tree lighting event is opened by Santa on a firetruck and Mayor Bill Peard addressing the town. The Christmas tree is lit and everyone is off and running to visit local vendors for hot chocolate, treats, arts & crafts, and a visit with Santa. I had an opportunity to catch some aerial photos earlier in the day and throughout the event. Enjoy!
