I can’t imagine a more exciting way to get into the Christmas spirit than when a small town comes together and puts on a Santa Parade. Last night exceeded all our expectations! The floats just kept coming, all lit up, people waving, shouting “Merry Christmas” and handing out candy to children and the children at heart.
It was a feel-good event, one that was put on hold last year due to pandemic restrictions. The icy wind last night didn’t keep people away, Main Street was lined with family groups, friends who had met up, church groups distributing hot chocolate and cookies, carolers and excited children, all waiting to catch a glimpse of Santa who was riding on the very last float, waving and smiling at all.
Even our little Shih Tzus, all dressed up as Santa’s Helpers enjoyed the outing. Thanks to Parrsboro & District Board of Trade for organizing another great event on such short notice. And thanks to all the citizens involved in decorating the floats and donating their precious time to bring some seasonal joy to all!
Happy weekend, everyone!
