"The Songs of Christmas"

Santa Claus Parade

Saturday, Dec. 8th at 6:p.m.


  The  Dresden Kinsmen Club is pleased to announce its annual Magical, Musical Christmas Parade.

This year's parade promises to be bigger and better, notes committee chairs, Darren Wills and Rob Marchand. The parade this year will be held on 

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8th at 6 p.m. 

Marshalling and judging at Dresden Area Central School at 5 p.m.

The theme for this year is 

"The Songs of Christmas"

The Kinsmen Club invites individuals and organisations to enter a float or special entry in the parade. The entered floats are the mainstay of the parade and clearly, demonstrate our community pride and involvement. We know that the people who watch and enjoy the Santa Claus Night Parade, are appreciative of all those who enter floats,  participate in special themes and just generally work hard to make the parade such a success each and every year.


Prizes will be awarded as follows.

1) Best Commercial Float

2) Best Non-Commercial Float

3) Best use of Lights.


The parade will start at Dresden Area Central School and end at the Tiffin Memorial pavilion on St. John Street in the park. Following the parade, Santa Claus will be at the pavilion to visit and pass out candy bags for the kids.


In order to avoid confusion for the little ones, the Dresden Kinsmen Club members ask that all parade participants "do not" include Santa Claus on your float. Santa will be on the Kinsmen float and the end of the parade as usual.

Those who wish to make a donation to the Santa Parade Fund to help defray some of the cost of the parade, primarily the expenses related to the more than 1000 bags of candy distributed to the children, may do so by contacting the parade chairmen, Dustyn at  519-683-6199 or  Fax 683-1079 or Rob Marchand at 683-4481. Or leave your donation with McKellar Flowers and Gifts.
