Student wins Ontario parade contest with vision of Santa’s Elves

Aurora Corona, a student at Alameda Elementary School, will preside as junior grand marshal over this year’s Winter Wonderland Parade in Ontario.

The Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce picked Aurora’s essay, titled “Santa’s Elves,” as the winner of its annual parade theme contest. 

The parade, with Malheur Enterprise as title sponsor, is set for 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, along Fourth Avenue, and entry packets are available from the chamber office or by email to [email protected].

Aurora described her vision for the elf-themed parade in her essay, reprinted here:

Santa’s Elves

By Aurora Corona

I think the theme to this year’s Winter Wonderland Parade should be about “Santa’s Elves.”

I have many wonderful ideas about Santa’s elves.

First, there should be elves working on the floats. On the float the elves should have different colored uniforms, with matching colored hats. But on one float the elves are looking at the kids opening their presents.

Next, the elves are helping Mrs. Claus bake the cookies for Santa. On that float they should put Santa eating his cookies and milk and getting his sled and seven reindeers ready for takeoff! The elves help Santa with the reindeers and the presents.

Finally, two elves are on Santa’s sled with all the reindeer and presents. All the reindeer, presents, elves, and Santa are ready for takeoff. On the float there should be confetti cannons, but instead of confetti there should be little elves stuffed animals shooting out at people as they are catching them.

“Santa’s Elves” would be a great float for the Winter Wonderland!
