Parade Day Reminders

NO PARKING ON THE PARADE ROUTE AFTER 3PM (Includes King Street and King Square North).  At this time, parked vehicles will be towed.  This is to ensure utmost safety for parade participants and spectators.


Give back by bringing along….

Non-Perishables will be collected along the parade route by Local 18 immediately prior to the parade start.  Please feel free to support our community efforts by bringing a donation and setting a wonderful example of giving back.


Gently used coats will also be collected along the parade route, prior to the parade start.  NBCC, New System Laundry and the Salvation Army have partnered to collect coats for those in need.  Please bring yours along and give back in this special way.


Letters to Santa will be collected, as is the tradition, right before Santa appears at the end of the parade lineup.
