SANTA CLAUSE PARADE & MFA
UPDATED Parade News!!!!!
Mom/Dads/Grandparents and most importantly MFA Children,
This year's Santa Claus Parade Float is coming along smoothly and very festive!!! Great news, Thewemusicproduction has two local singers joining us in celebrating the Christmas season :)
November 22nd is the Parade, for anyone who wants to help out decorating the float please join us at the MFA Hut at 9am (or when you can come along).... All help greatly appreciated :)
We need parents to drop off children at 4pm.. Trucks start their engines at 4:30pm!! We are #22 this year, so closer to the beginning of the Parade, let all family and friends know so they can watch out for us!!
Due to so many streets being closed early Saturday, our drop off will be on Atlantic Street, when coming down Main Street from the West End, there is a street named Enterprise, turn left down Enterprise Street, right onto South Street, then left onto Atlantic Street, go to the end, there will be a silver guard rail, and an opening to walk through, we will have Adults there waiting to guide you to our float :)
PLEASE, dress your children warm, it is suppose to be a chilly night, ALSO, could children on the float bring along a sleeping bag or comforter....
PICK UP LOCATION: Again for safety reasons, please have someone waiting (6pm) at the location for your child to be taken off the float, IF your child is allowed to meet you somewhere else, or walk home, we NEED to know about this!!! We will NOT allow any child to leave without permission... Remember the Adults are volunteering their time, and would like to go home as well at the end of MFA's float, so please be respectful. This year's end location will be at Crystal Palace Parking lot!!!!
PLEASE contact Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
