Brantford, Ont. – Toys Alive is the theme for the 38th Santa Claus parade that will take place on Saturday, November 24 at 6 P.M. There will be many extravagant floats that have opportunities to win different awards. The parade will run down Dalhousie Street ending at Harmony Square. After the parade, everyone is invited to visit Harmony Square to meet Santa Claus.
Last years’ parade followed the same time and route. The evening was cool but nice, with many in attendance. This year is expected to be equally nice with another great turnout.
A long term resident of Brantford, Adam McMillan said, “As a child I can remember my parents taking me to the parade every year, it is now fun to go with my kids and see how much fun they have collecting the candy and seeing Santa.”
Laurier has entered a float for the past few years. This year there are rumors it will be ‘awesome’ and even better than last years.
JCI, formerly the Brantford Jaycees, take on the task of putting the parade on each year. They are a national organization and have been in Brantford for over sixty years. They ‘allow individuals to learn and grow through community orientated projects.’ Many people join the JCI as an opportunity to support future entrepreneurs and business people.
