Festival Officials

2022 Grand Marshal:
Wendell Weimer

Wendell Weimer joined the Christmas in Springboro committee in 2000, where he coordinated the opening ceremonies while representing South Dayton Church of Christ. In 2001, Wendell was elected as co-chairman of the festival, a position that would formally become the festival’s President in 2011. Wendell served as President for 20 years, officially retiring after the 2021 season. While he was president, Wendell saw the festival grow to what it is today. He has left his mark on this 3-day hometown event in more ways than many realize. His grandchildren, Jonah and Piper Weimer, will accompany him in the parade.
