Meet Millie the Artbug at Sunday indoor parade

November 16 - This weekend, kids of all ages can come to the Christmas Parade at Shoppers World Brampton, to meet Millie the Artbug, Visual Arts Brampton's mascot.

The event heralds the arrival of Santa Claus, who will be appearing regularly in the mall until Christmas.

Millie, along with hundreds of other marchers, will be parading around Shoppers World mall on Sunday, November 18, starting at 11:00 am. During the parade, Millie's helpers will be handing out free Santa door hangers and Cinnabon coupons, courtesy of the mall.

Millie will be hanging around the Winners Court near customer service before the event, waving around during the parade, and meeting children around the mall after the circuit. Millie was originally the City of Brampton millennium mascot in 2000; she has glowing fibre-optic hair.

Angelina Ballerina will also be meeting children, who will be visiting the mall in the Staples Court, near the Habitat for Humanity Dream Playhouses.
