Band Consideration Request

Join us for the 2015 Parade


The Grimsby Santa Claus parade is a great community event that is only possible through the participation and enthusiasm of community organizations.

It is free to enter into the parade for community groups and non profit groups, and just $50.00-$100.00 for business entries.  These fees go towards our parade costs which include Police Services, Marching Bands and other operational costs.

Each year the parade has a different theme so that groups are continually challenged to be creative and 'festive'.



Companies that will be willing to lend out trailers for floats are listed below:

TDL Maintenance: (905)-945-7777   (Contact Rob or Tamara)

Darren Stone: (905)-978-0276
