Are you heading out to see Santa in the parade tomorrow (already!)? The weather is supposed to be +3 with possible flurries (if Environment Canada is to be believed) so it should be a good day for a winter parade. The parade begins at 2nd & St. Paul, travels North on 2nd Avenue and East on Victoria St. to 6th Avenue where it will disperse in the 600 Block Victoria St. The day starts with Wake-Up Santa at 10:30am and the parade beginning at 11:00am. There will be pre-parade entertainment starting at 10:15am along the parade route for the kids. I'll be thinking of all the parents attending with their overexcited children, trying to stay warm by jumping up and down and drinking too much coffee (which leads to the need for a nonexistent bathroom and more jumping) until the big finale, which after all is really the only thing everyone is there to see. Children are only children for such a very few short years and soon aren't interested in parades or things they consider childish or Santa either, meaning there are only a handful of Santa parades to enjoy with them. So bundle up warmly and revel in the excitement!
