The Greater Sudbury Santa Claus Parade Committee, Greater Sudbury Public Library and EastLink TV are bringing the holiday spirit to children across the city in a COVID-safe way.
You can watch the Greater Sudbury Virtual Santa Claus Parade on EastLink TV or YouTube on Sunday, Nov. 29 at 4 p.m. Families are encouraged to enter a miniature float built from a shoebox, book or other flat surface. Top with favourite action figures, holiday ornaments, mini-lights or whatever comes to mind. Attach a ribbon or string to pull the float and film the action. Be sure to use a plain background or decorate a background with wrapping paper.
Upload the video to YouTube and private message www.facebook.com/GSPLibrary with the YouTube link, family, business or organization name and name of your home community. The Greater Sudbury Public Library will connect all the entries to create a giant virtual parade for everyone to enjoy.
Complete instructions to build a float are available on YouTube. The deadline for entries is Nov. 24. For more information, contact the Greater Sudbury Public Library at 705-673-1155.
