Island Farms Santa Claus Light Parade is on Saturday, November, 24th at 4:45PM. All dancers ages 6+ are invited to participate. All dancers must attend a MANDATORY rehearsal on Saturday, November 17th 6:00-7:30pm. A sweatshirt will be required if a dancer does not currently have one. A few sample sizes are available to try on in the office during posted hours. They do run similar in size to the Year End Showcase t-shirts. We recommend sizing up as they do shrink and dancers will need to wear a shirt for warmth underneath their sweatshirt.
Please Note: the rehearsal is mandatory for all dancers participating, regardless of past participation. This is for marshaling and spacing purposes. Dancers who do not show up to rehearsal will not be permitted to participate in the parade.
All participating dancers are to required to wear appropriate attire in the parade. Aside from Santa Parade hoodies, attire includes: full length black jazz pants, black socks, red magic gloves, and a traditional red and white Santa hat. If you do not already have red gloves and a Santa hat, we do encourage you to start looking for them now as they do sell out closer to parade day. Dollar stores, drug stores and Walmart often carry these items.
Reminder emails and event day details will be sent to all participants as it gets closer to the date.
SWEATSHIRT PRICES & ORDERING

Dancers who have participated in the past and have sweatshirts in good condition (not faded) do not need to purchase a new sweatshirt for this year’s parade.
