Windsor and Essex County Santa Claus Parade: Parade Captured in Art
This application is for the “Windsor and Essex County Santa Claus Parades; Parade Magic Captured in Art", taking place November 26, 2022, to January 29, 2023, in multiple locations around the county. Organizers are looking for a way to expand the demographic that attends the three parades (Amherstburg, Windsor, Essex) and create links between the Windsor Parade Corporation and the local arts and culture community by engaging artists to help capture the 'magic' of the parades in photographs and paintings. Those works wil be exhibited after the parades in January 2023. The exhibition will be held at The Waters Edge event centre in Windsor. Parade routes will also include ‘Fan Zones’ to entice spectators to arrive earlier for the parades, enjoy some entertainment and receive information on locations within the parade vicinity where they can experience the local culture.
