Entry Form – 25th Annual Santa Parade

If you listen very carefully, tilting your head to the north, you can just hear the faint sound of sleigh bells.

It’s Santa, and he’s putting the reindeer through their paces, getting them ready to drop into High River on December 2nd, 2011 for the 25th Annual Night Time Santa Parade.

(wonder if he runs a GPS on his sleigh like a certain Chuckwagon driver has been known to do?)

Santa’s faithful friend, Ted Dawson sent us this today and asked us to share it with you all.

It’s that time of the year…better get your bells on!
