2022 Santa Claus Christmas Parade Judges Selected

We went looking for the jolliest of the jolly to judge this year’s Santa Claus Christmas Parade. And lots of amazing entries later, we’ve found them! 

A big thank you goes out to everyone who entered the parade judge contest. This year’s entrants went the extra mile to prove their Christmas credentials! Your entries brought us an extra helping of Christmas cheer this year, and it was a difficult (yet rewarding!) job choosing the three winners. 

And the Santa Claus Christmas Parade Judges Are… 

Lisa G. is a local to Santa Claus, Indiana, and is very involved in Christmas Lake Village community events and philanthropic endeavors. With her insider knowledge, she’s sure to be a great judge! 

Jill L. is a Nashville, Indiana, resident after a move from New Mexico. This move to the Hoosier State has prompted her to explore her new home and seek out special activities and events—and it doesn’t get more special than the Santa Claus Christmas Celebration! 

Sherry S. is our final judge. But we don’t want to give too much away by saying where she’s from because she’s surprising her three daughters with a weekend getaway to Santa Claus, Indiana. Winning a spot as a parade judge is just the icing on the cake!  

Congratulations to the Winners 

We want to extend hearty congratulations to the three winners. But the honor of judging the Santa Claus Christmas Parade isn’t the only prize they’ve won. Each winner will also receive a Christmas prize pack that includes: one vehicle admission to the Santa Claus Land of Lights, a $25 gift certificate to the Santa Claus Christmas Store, a $25 gift card to Evergreen Boutique & Christmas Shop, and a $25 gift card to S&S BBQ & Pizzeria. 

Everyone Loves a Parade 

While we can’t wait to welcome our 2022 judges, we hope everyone will come out to enjoy the Santa Claus Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 10, 2022, at 1:00 pm CT.
