We have made some changes to this years parade!
1. There is now a special sensory “QUIET ZONE” as the parade leaves Innisfil Beach Park, up to and including the fire hall (1 block). EVERYONE PLEASE refrain from playing any music, unless very quiet, sounding any sirens, bells, noisemakers, or megaphones until you reach the 25th Side Road. At that time resume normal activity. We are trying to include an all-inclusive barrier free / sensory zone, and want everyone to be a part of the Christmas parade.
