Hello Barrhavenites …
It is with very heavy hearts that the committee for the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade must announce that due to ongoing pandemic, we have cancelled this year’s parade and Breakfast with Santa.
We have been working with the City throughout the summer to come up with alternate methods for holding our parade but in the end, we were unable to come up with a solution that worked and could keep everyone safe. We heavily rely on several departments within the City to support our parade and because of Covid-19, many of those departments are already overworked and unable to provide us with the support we need.
The cost for the insurance for both events had also risen substantially and the protocols on keeping everyone safe were going to be difficult to achieve. We are all very disappointed, as we know all of you are, but would rather have everyone safe and healthy to attend next year. We would like to ask everyone to be kind to one another this holiday season and do your very best to bring the spirit of the season into your homes and our community.
Please remember to give to others this year, as best you can. Everyone has had a different struggle this year so if you can offer a monetary donation, a food donation or a donation of your time, please do what you can. We wish you all the best this holiday season and we will see you all in 2021!
Thank you for your generosity and support
