An Interactive Give and Receive Parade is presented by

Krewe Unique, OS ELKS B.P.O.E 2501, & the OS Carnival Association

Because of the craziness of this year, we have decided to waive monetary fees for parade entries; however, 

we still ask EACH participant bring an unwrapped child's gift with a value of at least $5.00.

We are also accepting donations to help pay for the cost of the insurance required by

the city and the cost of Santa's travel to the parade.


We hope everyone will get into the spirit of Christmas by dressing up, decorating, playing Christmas music, etc... but PLEASE DO NOT DRESS LIKE SANTA. We had quite a few Santas last year and we loved all of them BUT there were some confused kiddos.

Let's let Santa be Santa. Thank you much! 

PARADE LINE UP no sooner than 10:00am and no later than 1:00pm

PARADE ROLLS at 2:00 pm on Sunday, December 5th, 2021

*Before the parade begins we will take a picture of your group with the gifts and place the pictures on our Social Media pages so you can download and print. We will try to take the photo and collect the toys immediately after you check in on Jackson Avenue. We will collect the toys immediately after pictures are taken.  Please make sure to wear a mask and social distance as much as possible.
