A mild evening meant plenty of peo­ple got out to enjoy the nighttime Il­lu­mi­na­tion pa­rade in Bay Roberts Wed­nes­day. Hun­dreds from Bay Roberts and neigh­bour­ing com­mu­ni­ties lined Wa­ter Street be­tween the Town Hall and the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion to get a glimpse of the floats, dancers and walk­ers for the sec­ond run­ning of the pa­rade. It serves as the un­of­fi­cial kick off to the Christ­mas pa­rade sea­son, and what such pa­rade is com­plete with­out an ap­pear­ance by the man in the big, red suit — Santa Claus. In this in­stance, Santa was pulled along in a dory as chil­dren squealed with de­light. The Com­pass was there and cap­tured th­ese im­ages.

Santa Claus rid­ing in a dory was the high­light of the pa­rade.
