Santa Claus will take a break from his busy schedule to visit Fort Saskatchewan for the 25th annual Santa Claus parade on Saturday Nov. 25.
This free event is organized by the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce and starts at 11 a.m.
The parade will run through the downtown core beginning at 99 Avenue and 108 Street, then will travel down 99 Avenue and turn right onto 102 Street before taking another right onto 100 Avenue and then returning to 106 Street.
Parade chair person Mike Leblanc is ready to bring a little holiday spirit to town.
“The weather looks like it’s going to be outstanding too, so it’s all coming together and its going to be 10-12 blocks of what I call good ol’ down home Canadian fun,” said Leblanc.
For a second year in a row, the Fort Saskatchewan Senior AAA Chiefs will walk the parade collecting donations for the Fort Saskatchewan Food Bank.
Leblanc encourages residents to bring non-perishable food items.
“Everyone of the floats is handing out candy and candy canes and of course Santa is there too, it’s a great time for everybody,” he said.
Santa’s elves will also be collecting letters to Santa as they walk the parade route.
This festive event is one of two remaining outdoor Santa Claus parades in Alberta, noted Leblanc.
The Chamber will accept float entries until Nov. 21.
