Toys for Tickets

Parking tickets issued from November 1 to 30, 2019 can be paid for with a toy once again as part of The City’s Toys for Tickets program.
Toys for Tickets 2019

If you receive a parking ticket between November 1 and 30, you can choose to donate a toy instead of paying the ticket! All donations go to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau. The early payment rate will remain in effect when the ticket is paid for with a toy. Other details:

Toys must be:

  • new and unwrapped in their original packaging
  • of equal or greater value than the amount owed on the parking ticket
  • accompanied by receipt

Gifts for kids aged 10 to 17 are in high demand! View a list of toy suggestions by age. (pdf)

Consider donating:

  • Craft sets
  • Art supplies
  • Science kits
  • Books
  • Sports equipment
  • Jewelry sets
  • Electronics and headphones
  • Movie passes
  • Gift cards

Please take your toy donations to the third floor of City Hall in November (weekdays, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.) Be sure to bring your parking ticket with you. A receipt must be presented at the time of payment. If the toy is valued lower than the price of the ticket, the difference must be paid.

We encourage you to shop local and support Red Deer businesses when possible.

As always, toys are welcome from members of the public who have not received a parking ticket.
