Downtown Collingwood is once again pleased to present Collingwood’s Annual Santa Claus Parade. As in previous years, the parade will be held in the early evening to capture all the magic of our downtown holiday lights. Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 18, beginning at 5 p.m., and plan to join the fun!
The theme this year is ‘Christmas in Canada… as we celebrate the joys of celebrating the holiday in our great country! This year’s parade will be part of a very special day in Downtown Collingwood as we officially launch the holiday. Enjoy the many merchant Open Houses … visit with Santa’s Reindeer in Training …. Enjoy carolers on the street…. Plus more, including the traditional “lighting” of the town Christmas Tree! Watch for more details about this exciting day…. coming soon!
Now is the time to register your float with the committee. All entries will be judged in three categories – Non-Profit Organizations / Service Clubs, Youth, and Industrial & Commercial. Each of the above categories will receive prizes as follows – 1st – $100.00, 2nd – $60.00, 3rd – $40.00. There is no entry fee for community groups and non-profit organizations. The commercial entry fee is just $50.00.
Another great way to get involved in the parade is through your financial support. We want to make this year’s edition of the Santa Claus Parade bigger and better than ever. We encourage every business to consider becoming involved… it’s a great way to promote your business as you assist in staging this important community tradition.
