TORONTO - The Focus in Toronto organization is seeking entries for the 2013 Great Expectations Christmas Parade.

The parade will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 7. In keeping with previous years, it's a night parade and organizers strongly encourage entrants to use lights. Cash prizes for first-, second- and third-place floats will be awarded, as well as first-, second- and third-place trophies for dance/gymnastic groups.

The parade begins at Fourth and Myers streets and ends at Fourth and Main streets. Santa will do a meet-and-greet at the gazebo immediately following the parade. Treat bags will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents also can bring their own cameras for photos with Santa.
