With 68 entries, Santa’s parade will be biggest ever for Timmins

By Debbie Pell

Thursday, November 13, 2003 - 07:00

Local News - Saturday’s Santa Claus parade will be the biggest in the city’s history.

As of Wednesday, parade organizers had 68 entries and the total could rise.

“It’s going to be the biggest parade we’ve ever had,” said Anita Damini, parade committee member. “We were so pleased when we hit 50 (floats) so this is wow by any description.

“We’ve just been blown away by the level of participation and the number of new organizations and companies that are coming out for the first time with parade entries.”

Chairman Brian Blahey said the parade has grown in popularity ever since it moved to an evening time slot from the morning.

“Everyone enjoyed the parade during the day but when we changed it to the evening for the millennium in 2000 nobody wanted to go back (to daytime) after seeing that,” Blahey said.

Floats decked out in dazzling lights lend an air of added intrigue to the procession, he said.

“You can really see the floats because they’re so definitive with the lights and it doesn’t matter if it’s a big or small float you can see the effort put into them.”

Similar to last year, the parade begins at 5:30 p.m.

This year’s edition, however, will feature new entries.

For example, there will be live animals.

I got to witness the parade first hand yesterday and what an amazing show it was.

The people of Timmins really outdid themselves. The artistry of the floats was incredible.

There was a float with a Shania lookalike lip-synching to Shania's tunes from the UP CD. The float was actually towards the end of the parade and really pumped people UP! for the guest of honour who was bringing up the rear of the parade.

All in all, it was a fantastic evening.

sorry Chris,

I didn't think of bringing a camera... although I expect we'll see some pictures on True North News, the Daily Press or the Timmins Times website.

Hey Guys,

The float was a bit of a take off of the UP video where Shania is taking personal belongings out of a box. Instead, our Shania was taking out decorations for an elf to put on a tree and toys for another elf to fill Santa's bag with. Rick took some pictures and I'll be sure to get them posted once he develops them.

I had the pleasure of walking beside the float handing out candy again this year. I can tell you that the crowd was definately bigger this year.

Take Care,

Tracy
