Downtown Carleton Place will filled with the sights and sounds of Whoville at this years BIA Santa Claus parade.

“A Whoville Christmas”

Downtown Carleton Place is where the Grinch will find Christmas! The festive spirit will be making its way in and around and about the town. No, you are not mistaken, the Grinch who Stole Christmas and all that he has taken, will be downtown for this holiday celebration. The excitement is building and for a very good reason, as Santa will soon be here to celebrate the season.

I think the most likely reason of all may be that our hearts grow three sizes that day when we watch our Santa Parade. Oh the noise, the singing, the dancing, and more Santa will bring your way! There will be ribbons, tags, packages, boxes and bags that will adorn floats as they parade by.

Welcome Christmas, Bring your cheer, cheer to all from far and near! Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more! You will feel light-hearted for the season at the BIA Whoville Santa Claus Parade.

The Carleton Place BIA Whoville Santa Claus Parade is where we will stand heart to heart and hand to hand listening to singing and dancing welcoming the season’s meaning!

Every business owner and estate owner in town is encouraged to join the activity. The meeting will be held at the Carleton Heritage Inn situated at Bridge Street. Registration will start at 6 pm.

After the dinner, which will start at 6:30 pm and will cost $10 for each BIA member, the association’s proposed budget for the year 2010 shall be presented to its members for their approval.

The Business Improvement Association stresses that those who are planning to attend the meeting should make their reservations for the dinner and pay for the fees in advanced. Guests were encouraged to RSVP before last Friday, January 21.

For those non-members who want to attend the meeting, the dinner will cost $25.

The Business Improvement Association of Carleton Place started in 1979. Carelton Place’s business community appealed that the downtown area be made an improvement area by the use of provincial legislations and municipal bylaws. Thus, the BIA was organized.
