But Santa, and his parade elves, could use a little help with a few more floats sought to make it a more entertaining event. Float registration and instructions are on the website www.yorktonbid.com
The parade, as it was in 2020, is being held in reverse, with the floats parked at the Gallagher Centre Arena parking lot, and people driving through to enjoy the efforts of local businesses.
People are asked to enter at the Tim Horton’s entrance but are asked to not line-up before 4 p.m. with the parade running until 7 p.m. (till 8 if needed).
Vehicles will line up down Broadway Street to Gladstone Avenue, down Gladstone Avenue to Smith Street, then out along Highway #16 if needed.
If you don’t have a vehicle there is an option. Pedestrian bus pick-up at 4, 5 and 6 pm at the Legacy Coop City bus stop will take riders through the parade. (No pedestrians will be allowed on foot through the parade.)
To make the wait to see the floats a little quicker this year there will be Two lines through the parade.
The first 500 vehicles will get a family goodie bag.
People can tune into YBID Santa Radio at 90.5 for details and Santa talks during the parade.
Volunteers are needed for traffic control and again the volunteer form and information is on the website.
In conjunction with the parade the Tower Theatre MLT will host a matinee of The Polar Express at 1 p.m.
Cash donations to SIGN Yorkton’s Early Years Family Resource Centre are welcome.
Funding for the event were provided by Sask Lotteries and the Gallagher Centre parking lot provided by the Gallagher Centre.
