This year's theme is "Christmas Fun and Games".
To help with your creative process, we have listed the following subcategories for you to work from:
- Outdoor activities like skating and tobogganing, hockey, snow sculpting
- Classic toys like rocking horses and teddy bears, dolls (Barbie of course this year!), drums, toy soldiers, etc.
- Board games like chess, Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders
- Video games and/or characters
- Decorating the Christmas tree and home
- Road trips to family, or vacations and travel
This list is only a rough guide to get you started. Let your imagination snowball with your float design, and feel free to combine themes
(e.g. classic toy characters building a snowman or baking cookies). Remember to add colourful festive lights for this nighttime parade (but no strobes please). Music is also an
option, especially if it relates closely to your design theme. Put on your thinking toques -- or ugly Christmas sweaters --- and have fun!
Last year's parade was a welcomed returned to a post-COVID-19 "back to the norm" and we are anticipating upwards of 100 entries this year.
The entries could be pulled by vehicles, walking, riding, bands, animals, chorists and clowns, all with the theme of a Christmas Fun and Games in mind.
