Sights & Sounds of Christmas Parade is Saturday, Nov 19 at 6p.m. NEW THIS YEAR, the parade will start at the Eddy and Victoria Street Intersection & finish at the Amherst Centre Mall. Following the parade the community is invited to the Amherst Centre Mall for hot chocolate, float presentations, visits with Santa Claus and to celebrate the official kick-off to the season!
Again this year, we are excited to have tons of float participants join in the annual parade! A quick reminder to families watching, we have a couple floats looking for your help Saturday:
- Amherst Toyota will be collecting toys for Christmas For Kids during Saturday’s parade. They will have their big white Toy Truck all decorated, and will have volunteers walking to collect toys! Spectators can bring a toy to the parade (unwrapped, new toys only please) and they will pick them up. Christmas For Kids is a local organization that helps Cumberland County families in need during the holidays.
Sacks of letters are already arriving at the North Pole! Bring your letters to Santa to Saturday's parade, where Canada Postal elves will be collecting them and help Santa reply to each and every letter that has a return address :)
