Santa takes a dip at Dubuque's River Museum

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Santa took a dip Sunday afternoon at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque.

Many gathered around as Kris Kringle, decked out in his full red suit, slowly made his way into a Gulf of Mexico Aquarium to swim.

"At first I thought it was going to be a scuba diver," 9-year-old Aloysius Rewey said. "Then I heard everybody saying 'it's Santa, it's Santa!' and then I saw a boot, then red, and I thought it's Santa!"

After making his way into the aquarium, the swimming Santa posed for pictures and waved to all those looking on.
