The Santa Claus Parade organized by RE/MAX Key is right around the corner, and there's still time to sign up and be a part of the fun! However, time is running out, as the parade is on November 26 at 5:00 PM and the deadline to signup is November 24.

Carey Rose with RE/MAX Key explained joining the parade isn't just a great way to get involved with the community, but there are more benefits beyond just that.

"It's a great way to promote your business, organization or group locally and there is quite a crowd to promote to," she said.

If you want to be a part of the parade, Carey added there are a couple of different ways you can get involved.

"It's pretty flexible, you can make a float to showcase your business or organization or club, or we see some clubs physically present. For example, band or horse clubs or those sorts of things will literally decorate themselves in the parade. There are lots of options for battery-operated lights, so you can light yourself right up."

Prizes will be awarded to the best floats in the parade, which will be chosen by a community vote! Carey said after the parade you can vote on, and the winners will be announced on December 28. First place will get $300, second $200 and third $100.

Registration fees are quite low as well. If you're a business it's only $25 to sign up, and non-profit organizations can participate for free.

If you want to sign up, you can do so here. If you have any questions about the parade you can contact Carey directly at 403-934-0781 with a text or call, or you can also email
