Yes, Santa Claus is definitely coming to town and the Stittsville Village Association (SVA) is hoping to make his welcome the biggest and best ever.
Santa’s parade, in the evening of Saturday, November 28, will start at 6:00 pm from the OCDSB property at Stittsville Main Street and Neil Avenue and will follow the traditional route down Stittsville Main Street to Carleton-Cathcart Street. Along the route, there will be a special guest announcer welcoming this year’s participants.
After the parade, Santa will be at Village Square Park where the trees will be lit to welcome in the holiday season. To help the celebration, there will be Christmas music, hot chocolate, and cookies supplied by Farm Boy.
As in past years, the Stittsville District Lions Club will be collecting donations along the route of the parade for the Stittsville Food Bank. Spectators may make donations of cash or items of non-perishable food. The Lions will also be preparing the lighting on the trees in the park.
Those organizations who wish to join in with a float and haven’t yet registered should contact Marilyn Jenkins at 613-836-5075 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
