|Mark your calendars! Collingwood's Santa Claus Parade moves to the evening – Saturday, November 26 at 5 p.m. Downtown Collingwood is once again pleased to present Collingwood's Annual Santa Claus Parade. For the first time in many 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 26, beginning at 5 p.m., and plan to join the fun!
The theme of this year’s parade is “Home for the Holidays”. The parade will feature floats and music highlighting the joy of coming home to the warmth and magic of celebrating this special time of the year with friends and family. This year’s parade will be part of a very special day in Downtown Collingwood as we officially launch the holiday season. Your downtown “home” will celebrate by welcoming you into many merchant Open Houses, a Christmas Farmers’ Market and will feature special guests and activities throughout the day. The traditional “lighting” of the town Christmas Tree at the end of Hurontario Street will end the festivities, immediately following the parade. 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.
