Candy donations being accepted for Wallaceburg parade

This story is sponsored by the Wallaceburg Museum:



Did you not get as many kids as you expected on Halloween night? Did the rainy evening on Oct. 31st leave you with a lot of extra candy in your house? Maybe your kids got a lot of extra because the neighbours knew they would not be handing as much out?

Well why not donate it to the Wallaceburg Christmas Parade.

Taylor’s Convenience Store, located at 1644 Dufferin Ave. in Wallaceburg is the place to bring it.

There is a box just inside the door, and people are being encouraged to bring in leftover candy and place it in the box.

Volunteers will be distributing it throughout the parade.

The 46th annual Knights of Pythias Christmas Parade takes place in Wallaceburg on Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. The theme this year is Walt Disney.

Organizers are encouraging people to come with their floats early at around 1 p.m. to get setup on Arnold Street. The route will follow the same path as usual, down Dufferin, right onto Nelson and then wrapping up at the St. Clair Catholic District School Board parking lot on Duncan Street.

The group is also hoping to break the record for most lawn tractors in a parade. The record currently sits at over 800. Back in 2013, the Wallaceburg parade included nearly 300 lawn tractors.

Watch for more details about the Wallaceburg Christmas Parade all week long.
