*Here's the Parade Route Infographic...
... Here it is on it's side in case you read maps like Horsman where you have to pretend you're actually IN the map...

*Parking Notes: 
All City owned downtown parking will be open for free.
Parking meters are free on weekends. PLEASE WATCH THE SIGNS- IF YOU PARK IN A PRIVATE LOT YOUR VEHICLE MIGHT GET TOWED or BOOTED! Watch for the YELLOW Parking Signs that look kinda like softballs.
CLICK HERE for our post about how to park downtown.

*Note about Letters to Santa:
Yes! Canada Post volunteers WILL BE collecting letters to Santa.

*Note about not getting on the Naughty List: 
Research shows that cryers and pouters are 40% more likely to end up on the Naughty List© so try to avoid those behaviors.

*Note on snacks:
Peggy's Mobile Canteen will be in Staples parking lot in Dieppe... with hot dogs, fries, hot chocolate, and more... Peggy's Mobile Canteen is staffed by cancer survivors and proceeds on Saturday will go to cancer charities!

*Note on litter:
One year we broke a record for the mountain of coffee cups that got left behind after the parade... thanks for remembering to take your trash with you when you leave. Although... that giant mountain of coffee cups is pretty intense to look at... (artist rendering)

*Note on Thanks:
Thanks to the Moncton Wildcats for letting us be on their float this year!! So much better than our original float ideas...
