On November 13, a crew of PCCN Brampton members and friends assembled the float for our second appearance in the Brampton Board of Trade’s Santa Claus Parade.
The float was similar to last year’s, being a hay wagon provided by Ed Stewart’s Equipment in Erin and towed by BramCity Transmission’s special events van.
You’ve seen this van at all four of our Cruisin’ for a Cure shows thanks to Bill Stellings.
The hay wagon was decorated with bows and banners and multi-coloured Christmas lights and featured two Christmas trees covered with blue decorations and blue lights.
The parade featured many notable floats this year. While we did not win an honourable mention, our entry was loudly praised by the hosts of the Rogers TV coverage.
We plan to increase the blue light content of the float next year; we hope that you will join us in this effort to increase recognition of Prostate Cancer and our group next year.
PCCN-Brampton acknowledges our sponsors and volunteers for their contributions.
Their efforts will no doubt go a long way towards raising community awareness about prostate cancer and the need for early detection.
