Summer isn’t quite over yet but an announcement yesterday from the Greater Moncton Royale Santa Claus Parade…this year the parade is in Saturday, November 24th and there are going to be a few changes…Parade committee president Robert Gallant says that the group has decided to limit the number of entries to 80…and there will be a fee to enter…$300 for commercial floats and $100 for non-profits with $50 of that refunded after the parade. Gallant says that one of the biggest costs for the parade is hiring professional security to ensure saftey for parade crowds. The Moncton Santa Claus Parade regularly draws crowds around 100,000 and is the largest parade in Atlantic Canada. By the way…The theme for this year’s parade is A Child’s Dream of Christmas and registration is now open at www.parademoncton.ca with a deadline of November 2nd to enter your float.

No illnesses have been reported, but people should consult a doctor if they feel sick. More info HERE.
The Moncton Wildcats will open the season on the road tonight at the defending Memorial Cup Champs in Bathurst. Moncton’s home opener is at the Avenir Centre on Friday, September 28th against the Sea Dogs.
*Note to Wild Willie…always…always…ALWAYS maintain t-shirt cannon safety!
Take it from Chip the Buffalo: Always use supreme caution when operating a t-shirt cannon. https://t.co/24uyXPiiPw
