Scheduling conflict clips parade entries

There are a few blank spaces in this year’s Sidney Sparkles Parade.

The annual light fest is losing a few truck entries, as the parade conflicts with the annual lighted truck parade around Greater Victoria, also scheduled for Dec. 3.

Today (Nov. 25) is the deadline for parade entries, but organizer Ted Daly said he may be able to squeeze in a few late ones. Call him at 250-661-0222 or email parade2011@shaw.ca.

Spaces are also still available for the sailpast/lighted boat parade, which follows the land parade, off the Sidney waterfront. Cost is $10 per boat and includes entry to a post-sailpast party. Boats sail past the Sidney dock at 6:15. Applications are available online at www.peninsula celebrations.ca.
