The Georgetown Lions Club Parade started in 1932 and has been a continuous event since that time. The parade is now an evening event starting at 5:00pm and ending approximately 7:00pm. The over 80 entrants feature floats with many lights, making it truly a memorable evening. Of course the main feature is the arrival of Santa Claus who rides in the Lions Club Sleigh. While the Town of Halton Hills provides assistance with the event, the Lions are fully responsible for the oganization and costs of operating the parade.
The parade starts at Sinclair Ave. and Guelph St. in Georgetown and goes west along Guelph turning left on Mill St. to Charles St., finishing at the Georgetown Fairgrounds Park. The parade assembles on Sinclair Ave, and Todd Rd. Registrants are encouraged to arrive via Todd Rd. at Mountainview Rd. N.
PLEASE NOTE PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED AS ALL THE SPOTS ARE PRE ASSIGNED. Once your float has been registered you will be emailed further information and assigned a number. The numbers are displayed on stakes along the side of the road. It is importanct that you park in your assigned space.
Like all community events the Lions Club relies on civic minded businesses for their support, In 2017 we introduced a new category of sponsorship called Community Champions and with their support the Club was able to operate the event. As part of their sponsorship the company names were placed on the Lions Events Trailer.
Each year we ask the community for help in running this event. We need over 100 volunteers to undertake a variety of tasks, we can gurantee the best view of the parade. If you are interested please send an email to Lion Louie at firstname.lastname@example.org
The soothing sounds of Steve Melville’s jazz guitar layered over his Country, Latin, Traditional, Ballad and Jazz tracks – relaxing musical backdrop to a tapas style meal balanced by a fine wine or innovative cocktail. All happening each Tuesday night at the fabulous Uncorked on Main, 6-9 pm (when you can actually walk right into Uncorked and grab a seat!). With just a hint of Lenny Breau, this is the lounge experience Georgetown has been missing.
Steve picked up guitar at the age of 15 in his native Jamaica, and was encouraged by the expert hand of legendary Ska pioneer Ernest Ranglin. (Photo L-R: Jamaica natives Monty Alexander, Ernest Ranglin and Steve Melville).
He also plays at local events, and has a weekly Saturday stint from 6-10 pm at Georgetown’s The Cellar Steak and Seafood fine dining restaurant. Having retired from Air Canada 20 years ago, Steve has since applied his time and energy to becoming the guitarist that showed so much potential as a youth. Air Canada’s gift to the local live music scene!
It must be humble, sincere, crunchy and organic if it’s a song by Toronto Based Folk/Rock artist Jimmy Pearson. As a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, Jimmy strives to connect to thoughtful audiences with songs that embrace the pathetic and awkward facets of life.
Jimmy Pearson is a bona fide artist who crosses over several genres to reach the end goal – a connection with listeners – through expressive vocals, literary and thoughtful lyrics and a sound that is up-front and personal – in other words, Jimmy is real – Indie Spoonful
Watching Jimmy play is kind of like watching open heart surgery; it’s personal, complex, he keeps the rhythm going no matter what, and you can’t look away. With his voice, carefully crafted songs, guitar, and two kick pedals under his feet he left the audience with the feeling that there’s more going on than meets the eye. – Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival
Jimmy has a talent for songwriting, as well as performing those songs. It’s this type of album that always gets me, as it shows the talent behind the artist when they can write songs that appeal to many genres, and this is the case for “Good Friends”. – Canadian Beats
With his singing, playing and storytelling, a melodic tenor voice and gentle wit, Kitchener’s Michael Kelly Cavancontinues to provide heartwarming and foot-tapping entertainment wherever he finds a stage.
