A large crowd awaited the commence of the annual Santa Claus parade in Amherstburg this Saturday. The weather was mild and no rain or snow clouds in sight. The parade started at 6:00 PM on William Street and proceeded down Sandwich Street to Richmond ending at River Lights’ Warming House in Toddy Jones Park. It kicked off with marathon runners and walkers donned in the Big Guy’s gear!

The floats were remarkable, festive and carried with them jolly passengers who wished the crowd a Merry Christmas. There were marching bands, dancing reindeer and Christmas trees and semi-trucks that blew torches of fire. Almost every passing float had festive folks passing out candy and goodies to the children watching the parade.
After the Towne Shoppe passes through, the arrival of jolly old Saint Nick sends the parade goers into cheers and applause. Santa Claus Comes to Amherstburg and spreads his cheer to all those in attendance.
