YourTV invites you to provide a brief description (approximately 35 seconds maximum) of your Santa Claus Parade float or entry. The information will be used by our on-air hosts when YourTV presents coverage of this year's parade.
- The description should focus on the theme of the entry with perhaps a mention of number of parade appearances, awards etc. (see samples below);
- Compose your script in the third person (as if you are the commentator) and close out your script with a Christmas greeting;
- Promotional or sales messages from businesses are prohibited. This type of content will be edited;
- Due to broadcast prep requirements, YourTV cannot guarantee the use of the narrative if it is not received by the due date;
- YourTV reserves the right to review all scripts and they may be edited for content and/or length;
- This will be the ONLY method accepted. Please do no mail, E-mail or fax to YourTV.
Good sample script...
"It’s a Sesame Street Christmas from Cornwall Electric. Here come the characters from Sesame Street – Cookie Monster, Bert & Ernie,
The Count, Elmo, Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird all waving to the crowd in their bucket truck decorated with hundreds of energy efficient LED bulbs.
Thanks to the hard work and festive spirit of their employees, this is the 10th year that Cornwall Electric has participated in the Santa Claus Parade
and they would like to wish everyone a safe and energy-efficient holiday season."
Poor sample script...
"This entry of Santa’s Village is sponsored by ABC Restaurant owned by the Smith family who have been in business for over 25 years.
This season consider holding your holiday event or family gathering at ABC Restaurant with menu choices for every budget.
The Smith Family at ABC Restaurant wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
