Santa claus will parade
The City of Deux-Montagnes also announced that a Santa Claus parade will be held in its streets on Sunday, December 4. The merry procession will set off at 1 p.m. on 20th Avenue towards Chemin d’Oka. Young and old alike are invited to attend this enchanting event, marking the start of the holiday season. The City, through its press release, is expecting children’s eyes to sparkle at the sight of magnificent allegorical floats, emergency vehicles, mascots and magical characters. “Everyone will be amazed by the public entertainers, the performances of many community organizations and associations in the area and by many other surprises along the way! The enchantment will be at its peak when Santa Claus, accompanied by Mrs. Claus, passes by before they return to the North Pole.”
The children’s favorite character will take 20th Avenue and chemin d’Oka to chemin Grand-Moulin.
Closures are to be expected for citizens in the 20th Avenue sector and near Oka Road, between 20th Avenue and Grand-Moulin Road. The streets leading to these arteries will be closed to traffic from 7:30 am on the morning of December 4 and will be reopened as soon as the parade ends. It is therefore encouraged to plan travel for this period.
Food and Toy collection – Letter to Santa
The organization La Libellule will collect used toys (still in good condition) and new ones from the parade with their identified truck. Plush toys are not accepted. This is a good time to get rid of toys abandoned in homes. They are sure to make other kids happy for the holidays. There will also be a drop-off point under the gazebo near City Hall, located at 803, chemin d’Oka.
Postal workers from Canada Post will take part in the parade to collect the children’s letters and send them to the North Pole. Children are invited to put their wishes on paper.
