54th Annual Parade of Lights

The 54th Annual Parade of Lights will be held on Saturday, November 26th, 2011 downtown Scott Street, Fort Frances commencing at 4:30 pm.

The theme for this year’s parade is “A Festival of Trees,” with individuals and groups encouraged to enter floats.

The parade will start on the 800 block of Scott Street, near the Memorial Sports Centre, and proceed west down Scott Street before disbanding at Mowat Avenue.   The parade lineup will start at 3 p.m., with float judging starting at 3:45.  The parade then will get rolling ay 4:30 p.m. sharp.

The local Salvation Army will be collecting non-perishable food items and cash donations, so parade-goers are encouraged to be generous. In addition, Canada Post once again will be collecting children’s letters to Santa.
