Celebrating 150 Years of Christmas

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Santa Claus Parade Committee once again invites residents of Cornwall to participate in this magical event, kicking off the Holiday Season.

Before the parade, Breakfast with Santa will take place at the Civic Complex, sponsored by the Optimist Club of Cornwall. There will be lots of activities for children, including Stormont slot track racing sponsored by the Kinsmen Club, Face painting sponsored by the Optimist Club and an Inflatable bowling alley also sponsored by the Optimist Club. Breakfast with Santa is free for children and by donation for adults who join them.  Please come early.  The event is limited to  the first 750.

The parade itself will start at 5:00 pm on Saturday November 18, 2017 from St. Lawrence Intermediate School  located at 1450, Second Street East.  Businesses, Clubs, Organizations and Individuals are encouraged to participate in the parade. You can register a float, which you may choose to enter in the judging competition, or simply watch! The awards will be given immediately after the parade, at the Civic Complex. We encourage the participants to have a representative at the reception for the award ceremony. Refreshments will be served at that time, so you are all invited to join us in the celebration. 

The theme for the 45TH Annual Parade is 150 YEARS OF CHRISTMAS. We are hoping it will inspire your originality and creativity. To make the parade a success, we need the help and participation of individuals and groups like yours. Please visit our website at http://cornwallsantaclausarade.com to read the rules and regulations, fillout the theme registration form and the Entry form.  

We would appreciate receiving the Entry forms by Friday November 10, 2017.
