The City of Pembroke is happy to announce that the Santa Claus Parade of Lights is confirmed for December 11th at 5 p.m. thanks to our community coming together and expressing their interest in submitting a float.
The theme for the parade this year will be ‘Christmas in the Ottawa Valley’. This is something that looks a little different to everyone-and we want to see how you celebrate. It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Santa Claus Parade let’s see a huge display of holiday spirit! Christmas in the Ottawa Valley can be a good ol’ country Christmas laced in plaid or your favourite thing to do in the area at Christmas. This theme can be conveyed through music, costumes, props, and scenery. We encourage all participants to get creative with this theme and think outside the box! We want to see what Christmas in the Valley means to everyone and to keep it COVID-19 safe.
Please remember that we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic so while enjoying the parade we remind everyone to maintain 2 meters of social distance from others outside of their household, or to wear a mask if this distance cannot be maintained. Due to current regulations those participating in the parade will not be able to give out candy or items to those spectating so they are able to maintain their 2 meters of social distance. In addition, we remind everyone to not attend the parade if they are feeling unwell.
If you are interested in putting a float in the parade, sponsoring the parade or have any questions please contact the Recreation Department at 613-735-6821 ext. 1501 or email [email protected]
