Santa's coming to town.
After last year's cancellation, the Santa Claus Parade is back in Fort Saskatchewan, with a twist.
For nearly 30 years, the Fort Saskatchewan and District Chamber of Commerce has put on the Santa Claus Parade. Thousands line the streets to celebrate the season, score some treats and check out the floats.
This year to keep things COVID-19-friendly, the Santa Claus Parade will be in reverse.
"So, instead of floats and everybody driving through, we'll put all the floats and all the business décor and everything on the sidewalks," said Ty Sandstra, the chamber's shop local coordinator.
People will be able to drive down 102 Street. Once the mayor officially turns on the lights throughout Fort Saskatchewan, the reverse parade will light up and be open for everyone to check out.
"Santa is going to be there, the big man, and we'll also be collecting children's letters to Santa. So, the elves will be coming up, and there will be a COVID friendly way to collect letters and stuff from kids."
This year's parade will take place Nov. 26 from 7:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. Any business or organization interested in participating can do so by registering here.
