The town of Santa Claus continues to attract national attention. The Spencer County community will be featured this week on HGTV’s "House Hunters," and next week on BYU-tv’s "The Story Trek With Todd Hansen."
The "House Hunters" episode, "Tom and Terri Seek Home in Santa Claus, Indiana" airs Thursday on HGTV at 10:00 p.m. Eastern, with a rerun on Christmas Eve. The show follows home buyers through the process of selecting a new home. The episode will feature the couple touring Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari and riding the Thunderbird launched-wing roller coaster.
"The Story Trek With Todd Hansen" episode on Santa Claus will air Monday, December 7 at 8:00 Eastern. It will feature a spotlight on the town’s Christmas activities and interviews with local business owners and residents. A film crew from BYU-tv visited Santa Claus last year to capture footage in locations including Santa Claus United Methodist Church, the Santa Claus Post Office and Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort. BYU-tv is available on Dish Network channel 9403 and DirecTV channel 374.
