See Waterskiing Santa Zoom Across the Potomac on Dec. 24!

Waterskiing Santa will make his annual return to Alexandria on Dec. 24! Since its beginnings in the 1980s, this long-standing Alexandria holiday tradition has taken place along the historic Old Town Alexandria Waterfront, once a vibrant commercial port. Join your friends and family at this free event as you watch Santa and friends, even The Grinch, waterski and jetski the waterfront, from the Founders to Point Lumley Park, at 1 p.m. Christmas Eve. 

Sponsored by Lake of the Woods Adaptive Watersports, Pillar2Post, Woodbridge Scuba, and others, Waterskiing Santa is the longest-running water ski holiday show, spreading cheer to all ages. The show’s main performance is an hour long, and little ones will enjoy the opportunity to meet Santa at the pavilion on the waterfront and behind the Torpedo Factory following his performance! Join in on the fun at Waterskiing Santa’s Facebook page and website for updates on the event.
