The big man in red needs some help this December.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Santa’s Parade of Lights in Stratford.
Organizers need people to help with the marshalling of floats into starting positions along the parade route, to stand watch at barricades along the route, and to walk alongside the parade as it moves, ensuring spectators don’t step into the parade.
This year’s parade, hosted by the Stratford and District Saddle Club, is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 3 at 5 p.m.
The parade will take a scenic route along the shoreline of the Avon River. It starts at Hillcrest Drive and William Street, moving east along William Street to Lakeside Drive North, across the Festival Bridge, heading west along Lakeside Drive past the Stratford Festival and ending at the Tom Patterson Theatre.
To apply as a volunteer, fill out this form on the City of Stratford’s website.
