A reality show in which 10 contestants are competing to be the best Santa Claus is filming in the Flathead Valley.
The TruTV show called “Santas in the Barn,” filmed an episode Saturday in Whitefish.
Executive producer Charles Wachter says the downtown Whitefish episode challenged the Santas’ craftiness in creating a winter wonderland.
He says other competitions include milk and cookie chugging and chimney climbing.
Producers are inviting the public to be a part of the final episode, being taped in Whitefish at 4 p.m. on March 19.
The winner gets a $100,000 prize.
The show is scheduled to air in the days before Christmas 2015.
