A Wonderful Holiday Tradition Returns - November 18
Friday, October 17th 2008
It's not looking a lot like Christmas just yet, but businesses and community groups that want to be part of the 2008 Santa Claus Parade on November 18 should apply now.
After a year’s absence the Santa Claus Parade is coming back to Red Deer as part of the Biggest Tree Festival. “We’re excited to have the Santa Claus Parade kick off the evening’s festivities,” said Charles Strachey, Biggest Tree Festival Chair. “The parade has become a tradition in our community, and we think it is a great addition to the Biggest Tree Festival.”
The Parade will start at 5:30 pm from the Downtown Co-op and travel down Ross Street. Anyone who is interested in participating in the parade should visit www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca for a comprehensive registration package.
For more information, please visit the Red Deer Festival of Trees Web site or call Lindsey at 403.304.4761.
