Parades: All parades have the golf carts and clowns to entertain and make folks aware of our work with children at our hospitals.
This year’s theme is: 150 Years of Canadian Christmas Traditions! Entries will be expected to display their Canadian pride and how a Canadian Christmas may have looked over the past 150 years!
