Santa Claus is coming to town! Join your fellow Warriors and the Off Campus Community (OCC) and spread some UWaterloo cheer to the community with Warriors Sleigh the Santa Claus Parade.

OCC organizes the Warriors Sleigh event to bring some of our UWaterloo spirit to the community by entering a float and marching in the Kitchener and Cambridge Santa Claus Parades. 

“I think lots of students maybe don’t get as involved in the Waterloo Region or in the inner city community, so this is a nice way to do that," said Savannah Heintzman, one of two co-ordinators of OCC. "You know, put a smile on some peoples’ and kids’ faces by handing out candy canes: it’s a good way to get in the holiday spirit.”

UWaterloo students, staff, and faculty are invited to take part in the Warriors Sleigh event by riding on the float, which will be decorated with UWaterloo insignia and other holiday decorations, and by handing out candy canes in the parade.

The Santa Claus Parades will take place in Kitchener from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and in Cambridge 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 17. Transportation to the Cambridge parade will be provided.

Interested in sleighing the parades? You can grab a ticket for $5 to reserve your spot in the parade, and you'll get a $5 Feds gift card for participating.

You can also take part in designing and decorating the float. Reach out to OCC coordinators through email or Facebook [external link].

If you want to spread a little holiday cheer, come out and be one of the Warriors who will sleigh the Santa Claus Parade!
