*Note on Santa:
He magically appears at Main & Cameron St, and disappears at Paul St in Dieppe, so if you aren't along the official parade route you will miss him. (Don't blow this, you KNOW how important eye-contact is when it comes to being placed on the NICE list)

*Note on New Stuff This Year! Family Fun Zones!!
-11:30a- 1:30p Dieppe Market will have Magician Remi Boudreau, music from Shelley Bean and the Duckity Muds, and face painting!
-2:00p- 4:00p Blue Cross Atrium will have Magician Kevin Robart, music from Shelley Bean and the Duckity Muds, and face painting!

*Note on City Hall Activities:

-5:10p Is some fireworks.

*Note on Food Drive:
The Tim Hortons Food Drive Float leads the parade. Please bring a food donation to the parade if you can- thanks! #feedthehungry

*Note on Notes:
Letters to Santa will be collected by Canada Post volunteers, so bring your letters! (especially if you're borderline-naughty. This could make it or break it for you!)

*Note on Parking Downtown:
There will be some Free Parking for the parade at City Lots downtown.
PLEASE WATCH THE SIGNS- IF YOU PARK IN A PRIVATE LOT YOUR VEHICLE MIGHT GET BOOTED! Watch for the new YELLOW Parking Signs from the City to find their parking spots

*Note on Trash:
Hey, maybe if we all throw our discarded coffee cups in one giant pile after the parade, we could make a ski hill downtown called Coffee Cup Mountain!

Or maybe not...

*Note on our Float Friends:
Thanks to some friends who helped us out with our float... "For all your float needs, Lloyds of Moncton, Quality Concrete, the Trailer Store and Toys For Big Boys."

We are bringing back our float schematic from a few years ago... we don't have much time but are hoping to throw together our Gingerbread/ Live Bear Float this year...
