The Compass - - NEWS - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY AN­DREW ROBIN­SON ed­i­tor@CB­N­com­pass.ca

There were plenty of merry folks both on the side­walks and among those parad­ing along Wa­ter Street and Har­vey Street Dec. 6 in Har­bour Grace, where the lo­cal vol­un­teer fire depart­ment held the town’s an­nual Santa Claus pa­rade.

The weather was bright and sunny, with a slight chill in the air not enough to de­ter those on hand from en­joy­ing the sights and sounds the pa­rades had to of­fer.

Lit­tle ones look­ing to spot Santa Claus did not have to wait too long to see the jolly old man in a big red suit. It took ap­prox­i­mately three min­utes for the pa­rade to pass from be­gin­ning to end.

Com­pass ed­i­tor An­drew Robin­son was at the pa­rade and shares th­ese pho­tos.
