The Parade Route:

Marshalling begins at 6 pm on Nelson Street (behind Walmart/Zehrs)

The Parade will start at the corner of Nelson Street and Main at the West End of Town.

The rest of the route will be the same, turning onto Main Street heading east, turning north at the lights on Wallace Avenue.The parade will then turn east onto Elizabeth and finish at the Legion parking lot / or Memorial arena The estimated lengthof the parade is 40 Minutes.

 

 

Parade Float Instruction

*Marshalling Starts at 6 pm, in the south side of Walmart parking lot.

We are suggesting All Average Size Floats come into Barnett St off Hwy 23 – into Walmart to wait. It’s generally a 30-40 minute parade route. Be prepared (dress warm and be prepared for the possibility of being wet weather).

The Float line up is random, keeping the musical floats separate. We will usher you out accordingly – and as we shift forward.

Please arrange a meeting area within the parking lot – and try to avoid pick up and drop offs using Nelson Street as much as possible. It will be a very busy spot.

*The parade will begin formation behind Kincaid street – and as stated above, we will shift up street by street as time allows. Please be patient,  the streets will be busy, and some will be blocked off.

 

*We urge all participants to AVOID GAPS IN THE ROUTE, by driving slow, and keeping an eye on the vehicle BEHIND you as well as the one in front.

If the one behind is getting more than a vehicle length or two, PLEASE SLOW DOWN … if everyone stays watchful – it will run smoothly.

 

The LAST FLOAT will have Santa on it – we need the pace to remain slow so that his audience has an opportunity for him to wave at everyone.

 

*For safety reason we are asking that no candy be thrown out of vehicles.

*A Big thank you for your participation, and making this a fun night for all!
