It may be a day late for Christmas in July, but the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association announced today that it will be looking at holding its own Holiday Parade this year, and will be issuing a Request for Proposals to identify qualified groups who could organize it.
“The DWBIA is excited about the prospect of bringing a holiday parade back to the city centre,” said Larry Horwitz, DWBIA Chair. “We want to evoke community spirit and invite families, friends, downtown merchants and businesses to celebrate the holiday season and enjoy an evening parade and other festive experiences.”
The current Windsor Santa Clause Parade moved from Downtown Windsor a few years ago and has been held along Riverside Drive ending in Sandwich Towne.
The Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association is also exploring ideas about other activities including, but not limited to, horse-drawn carriages, carolers, ice sculptures, and lighting displays.
Applicants will be able to download the RFP from the Downtown Windsor BIA’s website at www.downtownwindsor.ca after 2pm on August 3rd.
