Hud­son gets ani­ma­ted with car­toon-the­med San­ta pa­rade

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Hud­son got in­to the Ch­rist­mas spi­rit last Sunday when the town hos­ted its an­nual San­ta Claus Pa­rade along Main street.

This year's car­toon theme event in­clu­ded 40 floats while do­zens of com­mu­ni­ty groups and lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions al­so mar­ched in the pa­rade with their own car­toon twist on Ch­rist­mas.

The Grinch of Dr. Seuss fame was a hit with the hun­dreds of on­loo­kers who came out for the fun, but chil­ly event, while a lo­cal Scouts of Ca­na­da troop dres­sed in crea­tive, home-made Sponge Bob Square Pants cos­tumes.

Stu­dents fromWest­wood Sr. High School bois­te­rous­ly sang Ch­rist­mas ca­rols while col­lec­ting do­na­tions to sup­port their on­going Bridge to Bu­run­di ef­fort to add on­to a school­house they have fun­ded in Bu­run­di, Afri­ca.

And mem­bers of Hud­son's town coun­cil of­fe­red fresh apples sup­plied by the Hud­son Far­mers' Mar­ket to people along the pa­rade route.

As is tra­di­tion, the fi­nal float in the pa­rade car­ried San­ta Claus who sha­red his pres­ti­gious float­with a Dis­ney-esque Cin­de­rel­la.
