HAMPER'S SANTA CLAUS PARADE - Brought to you by Community Centre 55 and the Kingston Road Village's Business Association.
Our 8th annual Santa Claus Parade is scheduled for Sunday November 23, 2014 at 1pm and we would love to have you involved. We will be collecting letters to Santa Claus and asking people to please bring a toonie for our Share A Christmas Program.
The parade is a collection of neighbours and businesses celebrating Christmas together, and is an excellent example of community and business working together to add to the quality of life in our community.
It is also an opportunity for real community and economic development. Community Centre 55 is happy to host the parade. This year is our 29th year of sharing Christmas with local families who have fallen on hard times and our Christmas parade serves as our Share A Christmas Kick-Off.
The parade route will be west along Kingston Road at Victoria Park Avenue, to Walter Street.
At the conclusion of the parade Santa and Mrs Claus will be 'receiving' the children at Community Centre 55 and there will be music, a tree trimming, face painting, food and beverages, photo's with Santa, a VIP reception and maybe a reindeer or two!
Fee Structure: $55 Non Profit, $35 Family, $80 Small Business , $100 Large Business, Band Sponsorships available for large corporations.
To enter your business, association, club, street or family float call Debbie Visconti at 416.691.1113 ext 225.
Parking-please, please, do not park along the parade route. Cars will receive a "friendly tow" and our charity gets billed per tow. That's the equivalent of 4 or 5 turkeys or a bag of toys for local needy families and we really really appreciate your consideration and co-operation with this. So please be aware of the temporary NO PARKING signs we put up.
