Cel­e­brat­ing Christ­mas in Up­per Is­land Cove

The Compass - - OPIN­ION - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLAS­MERCER

The bit­ing cold could not keep hun­dreds of the res­i­dents of Up­per Is­land Cove from en­joy­ing the an­nual Christ­mas pa­rade on Dec. 8. As the on­look­ers lined the pa­rade route, they were treated to a pa­rade that fea­tured va­ri­ety, in­clud­ing an im­pres­sive Thomas the Tank Engine, the Grinch and 101 Dal­ma­tions. The As­cen­sion Collegiate cheer­lead­ing squad, of Bay Roberts, and the 2797 army cadet corps also had a strong pres­ence at the event. While these were high­lights, every­one came to see Santa Claus. The Com­pass was there to cap­ture all of the magic.
