Meanwhile, NorthernLife.ca, Sudbury Living Magazine and Sudbury Sports Magazine are also getting in on the fun. People are invited to gather outside the Northern Life building, located at 158 Elgin St., from 4-7 p.m. Nov. 22, at our Santa’s Cabin.
Staffers will hand out free hot chocolate and candy canes courtesy of Vrab’s Independent Grocers and Giant Tiger, free Sudbury Living Parents magazines and Northern Life colouring contest pages (with a chance to win a $50 Toys ‘R Us gift certificate).
Furthermore, Downtown Sudbury, The United Way Centraide and SMS Rents are throwing a party to welcome everyone’s favourite jolly fellow in the red suit.
Join in on the fun Saturday before the parade at the Santa Watch Party with festivities scheduled to take place Downtown on Larch Street between Elgin and Durham streets from 2-5:30 p.m.
The Santa Watch Party will feature live music, free wagon rides, free tattoos, free children’s activities and a variety of everyone’s favourite festival foods – kettle corn, twisted potatoes, beaver tails, cotton candy, hamburgers and hotdogs.
The parade itself will likely include about 80 floats, bands and marching groups.
It begins at the intersection of Notre Dame Avenue and Ste. Anne and winds through the downtown.
