Santa Claus parade promises a Dickens of a good time

The UWindsor entry in Saturday’s Santa Claus parade will offer a Scrooge-eye view, says organizer Sandra Davis. The residence life manager says the float reflects the event’s theme, “A Dickens Christmas.”

“Our spectacular entry depicts Scrooge’s view on Christmas morning,” she says. “As he throws open the shutters, he looks across the town square to see people frolicking in traditional festive activities.”

Volunteers from residence and the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance will skate around a Christmas tree, build a snowman, or join in carolling.

Other UWindsor representatives include Campus Community Police and volunteers from the Emergency Response Team, as well as Lancer mascot Winston marching alongside varsity athletes.

The parade leaves Atkinson Park at 6 p.m. and will travel west along Riverside Drive to Brock Street, where Sandwich Town merchants have special treats planned. The university will provide free parking in lots adjacent to the parade route—AA, A, B, C and R.
