Red Deer’s Santa Claus Parade is making a final call for entries.

The annual parade, held in conjunction with Festival Lights the Night, will cover five blocks downtown on Nov. 16.

“The Festival of Trees begins with this beautiful evening in downtown Red Deer, and we want as many people as possible to experience the magic of the season with us. It’s a great opportunity for business and organizations to show community spirit,” said parade co-ordinator Tyler Bowman.

The parade is sponsored by Stantec, and Bilton Welding and Manufacturing is providing cash awards of $2,000 for first place, $1,500 for second, $1,000 for third and $500 for the People’s Choice Award. Applications for the parade close on Monday.
