No preregistration is required to be in the parade. Just show up at 4 p.m. for judging for prizes ($75 for 3 best floats) donated by Vance Motors, No Frills and Scotiabank (Maynooth).  Parade Marshall is Bob van Balen Walter.

Earlier in the day, plan to attend:
  1. The CHRISTMAS MARKET with 40 vendors in the Hastings Highlands Centre gymnasium, from 11 a.m. till 6 p.m.
  2. The HART’s KRITTER KRINGLE & TOONIE SALE in the old Community Centre, from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m.

    And don’t forget the KID’S PARTY at the ANAF, after the parade!

    Brighten the Night is sponsored by Maynooth & Hastings Highlands Business Association members in association with HART, the ANAF with support from Hastings Highlands Centre and Council.”

Organizers very much appreciate the continuing support of Beth Pepin, Kevin Vance and Karen Wadsworth for prize donations and to all the people who do the hard work that goes into creating their floats.
