Whit­bourne Christ­mas pa­rade shines

The Compass - - NEWS - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLASMERCER

A cold, sear­ing wind swept along the route of the Whit­bourne Christ­mas pa­rade on Dec. 15. De­spite the less than ideal condi- tions, pa­rade par­tic­i­pants and res­i­dents were not de­terred. The pa­rade fea­tured a num­ber of colour­ful floats, much to the delight of the many dozens of com­mu­nity mem­bers who took their spot along the route. Chil­dren pa­tiently waited for their chance to see Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus. When they did, their smiles were enough to beat back the cold a lit­tle bit. There were three awards given out at the event. First place went to the Smurfs, se­cond to Whit­bourne Li­brary Boards Pen­guins and third to Coast to Coast Elec­tri­cal. The Com­pass was there and cap­tured these im­ages.
