Santa Claus is com­ing

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - ed­i­tor@CBN­com­

Christ­mas Day is less than a month away, and we have you cov­ered on mul­ti­ple fronts. In­side this edi­tion, you’ll find the first batch of Let­ters to Santa, with lots of bright smiles beam­ing off the page. We also have a near-com­plete list of Santa Claus pa­rades hap­pen­ing in the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion-Pla­cen­tia area.

Ev­ery­one knows Santa Claus is com­ing to town on Christ­mas Day, but sev­eral com­mu­ni­ties in the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion-Pla­cen­tia area are also gear­ing up for the ar­rival of jolly old St. Ni­cholas be­fore that date.

Santa Claus pa­rades will take place ev­ery week­end be­tween now and Christ­mas Day. As al­ways, The Com­pass is plan­ning to head out and catch a few pa­rades. In the mean­time, we’ve con­tacted folks in com­mu­ni­ties through­out our cov­er­age area to find out when pa­rades will take place.

Here you will find dates and times for just about ev­ery pa­rade set to be held. So if you’re look­ing to get in the mood for the hol­i­days, here are a few op­tions.
