We need 30 people to wave and share holiday cheer! 2 people will walk in front holding a Gatehouse banner.
The parade attracts approximately 60,000 spectators as it travels along Lake Shore Blvd. W. from Royal York to 36th St. The parade starts at 10 a.m. at Dwight Ave. (just west of Royal York) and Lake Shore Blvd. W. and takes about an hour to complete the route at 33rd Street. You have to be at Second Street School for 9:30am at the latest. After the parade, there is an event called Skate with Santa at the Skating Trail in Col. Sam Smith Park. The kids can take a selfie with Santa, there is live music, the Beaver Tails food truck will be present, and of course, the kids can go skating.
All volunteers must provide their own "ELF" costume at their own expense.
Please purchase a green or red t-shirt (one size up from your usual size as you will wear the shirt over your coat/sweater).
These are available at Walmart for $5 to $12 in the men’s section. Bring it to The Gatehouse (by November 20th) or decorate it yourself. Elf hats are available at the Dollarama for about $2 - $3.50.
