Santa and Mrs. Claus will again be arriving in style in Santa’s beautiful Red Sleigh lit with over 2,000 lights. Along with the lights are over 100 ft of garland.

Santa’s ride is provided by a collaborative effort of Steve Lemens, Pam Leeper, Mike Kolar, Pat Lemens, Glen & Sonya Colliver, and Randy & Kerry Mueller with special thanks to Glencove Marina and Summerset Boat Lifts.

Please note the changes this year! The parade starts at 3:00 sharp, then immediately after the parade Santa will be greeting all the kids at Iguana Campground below Bagnell Dam! At the bonfire there will be treats and a small gift bag for the kids, hot chocolate, coffee and refreshments, Christmas music and caroling and also the Parade Float winners will be announced there at the Bonfire!! So after the parade come to the campground and enjoy the old time community Christmas atmosphere and cheer as Santa greets the kids, and enjoy the Lake Holiday Bonfire!!
