Registration is not required. Simply decorate a cart and show up at the staging area on the corner of Canyon Lake Dr. South and Blue Bird Dr. between 5 and 5:30 p.m.
Parade participants are asked to bring an unwrapped toy for the Toy Drive. Toys will be collected at Holiday Harbor Park at the end of the parade.
Santa’s sleigh cart will lead the procession beginning at 6 p.m. The parade will travel on Canyon Lake Dr. towards the east gate, turning around at Windward Dr. and traveling to Holiday Harbor Park where the toys will be collected, awards presented and complimentary cocoa, coffee and cookies served.
Residents who are not participating in the parade are invited to line the parade route and cheer on the festive carts as they pass by. Spectators are also invited to partake in the Toy Drive by giving an unwrapped toy to Santa as he drives by.
