Build a Float for the Greater Sudbury Virtual Santa Claus Parade

Nov 16, 2020

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.

Watch the Greater Sudbury Virtual Santa Claus Parade on EastLink TV or YouTube on Sunday, November 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 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 at

Deadline for entries is Tuesday, November 24, 2020. For more information, contact the Greater Sudbury Public Library at 705-673-1155.
