santaparade2015
The magic of the holiday season will be starting in Aurora, as Santa makes his annual visit at the Santa Under t
he Stars Parade on Saturday, November 28. The Aurora Youth Soccer Club is proud to be participating in the event again this year. We are calling all of Santa's Helpers to join us on our float! We need walkers alongside the float and elves to sit on the float.

The parade will begin at the St.Andrews shopping plaza and continue south on Yonge St to the Canadian Tire parking lot. We are asking that everyone who wishes to be involved be at the St. Andrews Plaza by 5:30pm. Casey's bus t
ransportation will shuttle participants from the Aurora High School parking lot to St. Andrews Shopping Plaza parking lot. The shuttle service will operate between 4:30pm to 5:15pm and will return members from the Canadian Tire parking lot after the parade back to Aurora High School. You can also drop participants off at the St Andrews Plaza but no parking or waiting around will be tolerated. Our float is #26 and will have a trailer between 16-20ft.

The Santa Under the Stars Parade is one of the most highly attended parades in York Region. This night time display is enchanting with beautifully decorated floats, incredible marching bands and a few special guests including Santa Claus himself!

- We also need one or two parents willing to ensure there are no children left behind at Canadian Tire and that we stay as a group until all children have been found by their parent/guardian.
