There will be two Santa Claus parades in Windsor this year.
The Downtown BIA Winter Fest and parade received approval for road closures on December 15.
Some argue Windsor cannot support two parades and this is pitting the two events against each other. Chair of the Downtown Business Improvement Association Larry Horwitz disagrees. “Every area of Windsor should have opportunities and have a future but downtown really needs to be the heart of the city. Downtown needs to have a parade, a winter festival, it needs to invite people downtown and diversify the economy.”
The Windsor Parade Corporation will hold its parade in Olde Sandwich Town on December 1st.
