The Legacy Dodge Santa Claus Parade is Coming Soon!
One of the best events of the winter season is the Legacy Dodge Santa Claus Parade and it will be held this year on the night of November 23rd. On this Saturday, the parade will take place and provide plenty of holiday spirit for those involved and in attendance.
This year's theme is "Lights of Christmas," and entries are still being accepted for the parade. If you're new to the area, you may already be experiencing the shock of the winter. The parade helps provides something magical throughout the area and helps to keep Christmas alive in the heart of residents.
As the nights become longer and the days shorter, events like this help to keep your spirit up. This parade is known as one of the best in the Wood Buffalo area and will light up the downtown area with floats, walking groups and so much more. Franklin Avenue will become a Christmas wonderland during the parade.
If you want to participate with a float, walking group or anything else, you may receive an award. Potential awards include:
Best in Parade
- Youth Group
- Social/Service Organization
- Judges Choice
- People's Choice
