This year’s Santa Claus Parade is just one week away, with that beloved, Jolly Old Gift-Giver with the bag full of toys and the belly like a bowl full of jelly set to roll through St. Marys next Friday, Nov. 18 beginning at 7:00 pm.
The parade route begins at the Pyramid Centre and travels along James Street South to Queen Street before making its way through the downtown core. It makes one more turn at Water Street before concluding in the Canadian Tire parking lot.
Those interested in entering a float or with any questions are invited to contact the Kinsmen Club of St. Marys through their Facebook page. More information can be found by searching for the event “St. Marys Santa Claus Parade” on Facebook.
Kinsmen Club President Chris Swarthout credited town businesses for helping them out by sponsoring the parade to cover expenses such as insurance and the musical groups that perform during the parade, as well as helping out in other ways during the night of the event every year. “Downtown merchants are some of our biggest contributors,” he said.
