NEWCASTLE SANTA CLAUS PARADE Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 5:30 pm
The Newcastle Santa Parade is a wonderful event starting with a fantastic fireworks display at 5:30 pm followed by 70 entries that range from marching bands, to clowns and beautifully light up floats that children of all ages enjoy. We are all in great anticipation for Santa's next magical visit to Newcastle with sounds, lights and marching bands of a night time parade. This year the theme for the Parade is 'Winter Wonderland'. Mark the date on your calendar and wear a Santa button on Sunday, November 19th, 2017.
Santa's Buttons Putting on a parade of this nature is quite costly. The big bands and floats that you see require a considerable fee for their services.. We rely on the generosity of our sponsors and the people who support the parade through the purchase of a Newcastle Santa Parade Button. This mainstay of our revenue stream helps to make this parade a reality for people in our community. Many of you have buttons from each of the parades and have the entire collection. We are very pleased to see them all along the parade route. The children especially like to wear Santa's button and keep it as a souvenir of this memorable event. Please help us keep this parade getting better and better by making a donation for a Santa Button.
Parade Route The parade will proceed easterly from North Street along King Avenue to Arthur / Brookhouse street in the east.
Parade Staging Area Floats should arrive along Hwy #2 in the west end of town to Rudell Rd where they will be directed to their starting location according to their pre-assigned number... Please note this is not a drop off area. The drop off area is at Massey Dr. and Foster Creek Drive. Click on the Newcastle Map button above to see these areas.
Parade Safety We ask that you and the children stay no closer to the parade than the edge of the curb for your own safety. If we all follow this safety rule, all of the children will be better able to see the attractions in the parade, and they will be able to interact with the elves, clowns, and food drive collectors that travel the parade route.
Parade Organizers The parade is organized by a volunteer committee of the Newcastle Business Improvement Area. The moment one parade ends, the committee starts meeting to make arrangements for the next year's parade. Without the hundreds of hours that these volunteers have contributed, our parade would not be the success it is today.
