Join the University of Waterloo as we sleigh the local Santa Claus Parade!
We will be walking along the route and handing out candy canes to all the kids! Get ready to shout Water Water Water along the way and have a fantastic time bringing joy to the local community!
TICKETS: The "up front" cost is $3 or $5 depending on the transportation, HOWEVER.. You get an equal amount redeemable coupon for INews when you arrive at the parade!
WHY DOES IT COST MONEY TO MARCH? We need to ensure we cover the costs should you agree to participate and then not show up.
