THANKS TO OUR SPOSNORS
Mayor Mark Jacobs
We Thank All Those Whose Generosity Keeps the Tradition Alive.
2022 GCDDA SANTALAND PARADE A HUGE SUCCESS!
It’s not early to think about becoming a sponsor for the Garden City Downtown Development Authority Santaland Parade. This year’s parade is the 61st version.
The parade is completely self-funded and put on by volunteers so financial input from the community is essential. There are many fixed costs every year from barricades to costumes, bands to porta potties, entries to insurance and more. These items run into the tens of thousands of dollars.

The Santaland Parade Committee cannot even begin to thank everyone for their efforts, support, attendance and participation in the 61st Garden City Downtown Development Authority Santaland Parade. The 2022 parade was one of the best we’ve ever seen.
First, we want to express our gratitude to the dozens of volunteers who helped with staging, security, check-in, costumes, character handling, parade marshalling and all of the other things that are essential to putting on a successful parade. The volunteers who work parade day are indispensable.
