SANTA PARADE!!! @ legislative buildings
Nov 28 @ 5:15 pm – 7:00 pm

 

THE MOST FUN EVENT OF THE YEAR is the Victoria Santa Night Parade.  It might be one of those “bucket list” items for you!   Starts on Government street beside the legislative buildings, goes up Government street where thousands of adults and kids line the street…so close you can touch them, and then ends at Capital Iron for a block party.   It is fun to watch and fun to be in.  We will walk in an organized bunch of pole walkers.

Last year was our first year in the parade.  In spite of some skepticism, it was a blast and everyone was enchanted by all the fun energy of this event.  WE WANT YOU THIS YEAR!  Let’s have 100+ pole walkers!  Wear  Santa/elf hats and use battery operated lights on your poles.  We looked great!  The crowd loved us.  It was fun!    It is not only great publicity for pole walking, but it is the most fun 1.5km walk you will ever do!

Let me know now that you plan on participating!  It’s Free.  It’s Fun!

We also need spouses to walk with us and take photos, and two people without poles to carry our light weight banner.

(Maybe I can get helium balloons to tie to the back of our necks and float along the street….or what crazy fun ideas do you have?)

Do we want to go and have a party say at a restaurant after the parade….how about that big restaurant at Tillicum Mall?
