Culture & Events — 22 November 2017

By Dryden Observer Staff

Mark down the first of December on your calendar because Santa will be in town for the annual Dryden Kinsmen Christmas Parade. This year’s theme is a Canadian Christmas.

“To continue our Canada 150 celebration, the Kinsmen Club thought it would be important to have show us their idea of a Great Canadian Christmas,” said Ryan Graham. “ We are hoping that Dryden comes out to fully celebrate with lights, music and more on December first, either as a participant or with a float. And let’s not forget the Big Guy who is coming from the North Pole to help the party happen too!”

Deadline to register is 4 p.m. on Monday Nov. 27.

All participants will receive their line-up number marking on the evening of Nov. 29. 

The parade begins at 6:30 and all participants must be lined-up and ready by 6 p.m.

All floats are to drop participants off for pick up at Open Roads School.

For inquiries contact Chris Pollard at CKDR, 223-2355, or Ryan Graham, 221-7078.

Registration forms can be dropped off at CKDR.
