Innisfil Drive-By Christmas Parade, 2021


The COVID-19 pandemic has denied most of us many of the simple pleasures in life, including those around family events like Christmas. In Innisfil, the Innisfil Community Events Corporation, in cooperation with many local businesses, created for the second time in as many years a COVID safe Christmas parade event during which the viewers travelled within their cars around floats and exhibitors. This ensured only small groups gathered, with those being mostly families, and the participants remained socially distanced.

Our crew followed the thousands of cars that flocked to the Innisfil Recreation Centre to see Santa and enjoy all of the Christmas celebrations.

Five Points Media has recently transitioned to become an active part of a new provincially registered not-for-profit corporation called the Ontario Community Awareness Network. To the best of our knowledge, ours will be the only community channel of its kind in the province if not the entire country.

We are looking for new programming ideas, with our focus being mostly on fringe and minority groups whose members are mostly ignored by mainstream media. These include, but are not limited to, the Indigenous population, People of Colour, members of the LGBTQQIP2SAA community, and people of various cultures and religions.

We will continue to donate all video and media services to registered charities and benevolent not-for-profit groups that promote unity and support all members of the community. Our eventual goal will be to expand our programming to cover all of Ontario through a network of regional bureau facilities. This service will help all people in Ontario to learn about each other and work in unity.
