We Thank All Those Whose Generosity Keeps the Tradition Alive.

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.
