The Oakville Santa Claus Parade is celebrating 65 years this year.
In honour of this milestone, the theme for this year's parade is very open ended. Anything to do with Christmas tradition, history, Oakville, and past parades is encouraged.
If you would like to participate in the parade you can fill out this entry form. The deadline is October 30 or the first 50 entries, whichever comes first.
The parade begins promptly at 9am at the corner of Lakeshore and Reynolds in Downtown Oakville, travelling west on Lakeshore to Kerr Street and then north to Stewart. It will go forward rain or shine, so dress accordingly!
Also, remember to bring your spare change, canned goods, and new unwrapped toys to donate to charity. Remember it's Christmas, so get into the spirit of giving!
So mark the date - November 16 2013. Can't wait to see you there!
