Once again the time for Christmas shopping, baking and the gathering of family and friends will soon be upon us, as the thoughts of Oakvillians young and old gradually turn toward a visit from the big guy himself. Yes, Santa Claus will soon be making his yearly ride down the streets of Oakville in his great red sleigh!
The Oakville Santa Claus Parade Committee has been as busy as elves over the summer preparing for this year’s Parade, which takes place Saturday, November 17th, starting at 9 am. This year’s theme is Once Upon A Christmas to bring back fond memories or foster hope for Christmases to come.
The Parade is now accepting applications for float and walking group entries and encourages all those from the community to show their creativity by participating in this year’s event. Schools, businesses and community groups are encouraged to participate. Entry forms and rules can obtained from the Parade website www.oakvillesantaclausparade.ca by clicking on Registration. The deadline for entries is October 28, 2012, or the first 50 entries, whichever comes first.
Once again, children can look forward to entering our annual colouring contest designed by Steve Nease and possibly winning the chance to ride in the Parade along with our Grand Marshall. Stay tuned for details on the colouring contest and the many other exciting Parade events that are in store for you this year.
