If you missed going to the Goderich Santa Claus Parade, you missed a wonderful event. The evening turned out better than years past, as the temperature kept above freezing and the slight drizzle did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the crowd.
The Goderich Laketown Band, under the direction of Hugh McGregor, entertained the crowd prior to the tree lighting ceremony with a selection of Christmas music, getting everyone into the Christmas spirit.
And then the parade! Fire trucks and emergency vehicles with lights blazing and sirens wailing, announced the approach of the parade. There were floats of all shapes and sizes, all brightly lit and filled with Christmas cheer. It was a memorable night.
