More than 10,000 people line the streets to welcome Santa and his special guests. The parade opens with the Town Crier in horse and buggy, calling out the news that Santa is on his way!  The parade usually lasts about a hour or so with loads of festive cheer.

The Parade starts at 11am on Saturday Nov. 27 on Main  Street. and a Arts & Craft Fair follows at the Elks Hall for all your shopping needs.  If you attend, hope you all have a safe and fun trip.
