VIDEO: Santa Claus Parade makes thrilling return downtown

Arguably the biggest event of the year, the Rotary Santa Claus Parade made a huge comeback on Queen Street after a three-year hiatus.

Santa Claus is coming to town!


After a three-year hiatus, thousands of locals lined the sidewalks of Queen Street Saturday evening to welcome back the Rotary Santa Claus Parade.


Upwards of 50 floats passed through the downtown core as participants waved and handed out candy to the kids and families in attendance. 


The community favourite saw a number of local businesses, high schools, emergency services, and plenty of other establishments take part in the parade.


And of course, Santa Claus capped off a successful evening as the younger attendees excitedly watched him pass by.
