Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

This years Santa Claus Parade is shaping up to be bigger, better and brighter than ever before.

Saturday night will be 37th instalment of the parade put on by the Kinsmen Club of Sarnia.

President Bob Marks says they’ve hit their cap of 50 floats and each one should brighten up the night sky.

“The participants are up into thousands of lights now. These new LED lights just allow them to do so much more, so there’s some really well-lit and beautiful floats.”

This years theme is based off the movie A Christmas Story, so Marks says you can expect to see some leg-lamps on some of the floats.

The parade will also once again feature four large high school marching bands from the US, and a brand-new sleigh for Santa.

The Kinsmen Club is still accepting donations, and the Sarnia Christian School will be taking food donations during the event.

The parade gets underway at 6pm on Exmouth St. and will arrive at City Hall at 6:30.
