The Santa Claus parade is set for Saturday, December 3. Groups will meet at the MTO building parking lot to begin the route downtown, via Monk Street, at 2:30 p.m. The parade wraps up after it turns east from Hastings Street and moves towards Riverside Park.
Activities will continue at Riverside Park up until 7 p.m. There, families can receive a free digital photo for making a donation to the Kids-In-Need Toy Drive. And those who donate food items for North Hastings Community Cupboard can receive a S’mores Kit.
Special guests at the event will include Rocky The Rockhound, Sparky the Fire Dog and, of course, Santa Claus.
A tree lighting ceremony and carol sing is planned for 6:45 p.m.
