Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest and the Thanksgiving Day Parade have gone wireless. For the third year in a row the 150,000 spectators at the Thanksgiving Day Parade will be able to text in their votes for the Peopleâ€™s Choice Float Award.
Congratulations to the Pirate Ship Float, sponsored by the Stag Shop ~ the winner of the 2011 People's Choice Float Award!
Spectators simply text the code on the sides of each of the floats to 54500 to cast their vote for the interactive award, and they can vote as many times as they want! The voter will be entered into a draw to win two tickets to fly with WestJet - to be drawn after the festival.
