If you remember much about the holiday classic A Christmas Story, you’ll recall the scene in which the Parker clan ventures downtown to watch the annual Christmas Parade. They snag a prime spot in front of Higbees Department Store and marvel at marching bands, garish floats, Santa Claus and even Mickey Mouse being pestered by the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz(?)!
For many of us, watching the annual home-town Christmas parade is part and parcel of our Christmas traditions. That’s because Christmas parades serve to usher in the excitement of the holiday season.
For the past three years, RetroFestive has been thrilled to take part in the Oakville Santa Claus Parade where we’ve co-sponsored parade floats with (what else) Christmas movie themes! Thanks go out to Jeff Knoll and the good folks at Oakville’s own Film.ca Cinemas who’ve invited us to join them in creating these awesome parade entries!
