This year Santa made his debut appearance in Lincoln for the season in grand fashion. A new float was designed specifically for Santa, and in the inaugural ride, one lucky little girl got to ride along.

Main Street Lincoln hosted a Facebook contest that would result in one youngster being invited to come to town with Santa. The winner was 7-year-old Ivy Sandel.

Main Street officials had left pretty big hints that there would be a new Santa float, but surely no one imagined it would be as spectacular as it was.

As it passed by, kids and adults alike were in awe of the beautiful float with hundreds of tiny lights taking on the shape of Santa's sleigh and reindeer. The float was sponsored by the Lincoln Elks and by Seth Goodman of ME Realty.
