TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2017 /CNW/ - On Dasher, on Dancer, on SUV drivers! When the 113th Santa Claus Parade delights crowds on November 19, Mercedes-Benz vehicles will play reindeer by pulling floats as the official automotive sponsor of the parade.
"We're honoured to be a part of this tradition that delights so many by bringing the magic of the holidays to life," said Virginie Aubert, Vice President of Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Canada. "Santa is obviously the star of this show, but we're thrilled that our three-pointed star will help pull his sleigh!"
Mercedes-Benz Canada will provide the Santa Claus Parade with a fleet of 30 grey, silver and – most fitting – "Polar White" GLE and GLS SUVs to pull the parade's festive floats along the route.
