Santa is ev­ery­where

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Santa Claus has been all over the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion re­gion for the last lit­tle bit in the lead up to Christ­mas Day. The Com­pass has cov­ered a lot of Santa Claus pa­rades and snapped loads of pho­tos to share with reads. In this week’s pa­per, you’ll find pho­tos from pa­rades in Bri­gus, Bryant’s Cove, Car­bon­ear, Heart’s Con­tent, Spa­niard’s Bay and Vic­to­ria.

The sud­den on-set of rain could not dampen the spir­its of those watch­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the an­nual Spa­niard’s Bay Santa Claus pa­rade on Dec. 13. Just as the pa­rade was get­ting un­der­way, the skies opened up and wa­ter poured from the heavens. How­ever, res­i­dents still got out to en­joy the pa­rade as dozens lined the route, which started on the beach and ended at the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion. Through it all, ev­ery­one had an en­joy­able time cel­e­brat­ing the on­set of the hol­i­day sea­son. The Com­pass was there and cap­tured th­ese images.
