The Parade started as an initiative by the BIAs, to draw attention to the area and promote local industry.
We're always looking to bring that vision to life, and add value to our neighbours and businesses.
Take advantage of having 60,000 people at your doorstep!
Whether it's deals, discounts, or simply something just for the holidays, offer your customers something festive.
With so many people out in the cold, offer your space for visits and a chance to warm up while they wait.
Keep your doors open, so people who may not be walking the area normally, can come see what you do.
Whether it's for kids or the kids-at-heart, it's always better to give than to receive.
We've seen everything from colouring and crafts, to candies and cocoa. Be creative with the kiddos!
Whether you're open or not, be a part of this special event with Santa support in your window.
Participating on parade day as a business helps bring the neighbourhood to life, but also allows you to meet your neighbours, and introduce yourself to new customers.
If you do choose to do something, LET US KNOW! We love to keep our fans informed, and let them know how to make the most of parade day. We also offer free SANTA SUPPORTER WINDOW CLINGS to participating businesses, so everyone knows to look out for you on their walk.
