The Compass - - FEATURE - BY MELISSA JENK­INS

The morn­ing of Satur­day, Dec. 12, the sun was shin­ing and the tem­per­a­ture was above freez­ing, the per­fect tem­per­a­ture for a pa­rade.

And

the

pa­rade

in

Whit- bourne went off with­out a hitch.

Over a dozen en­tries marched along the main road just af­ter 11 a.m., and chil­dren and adults alike were happy to wave to the ador­ing spec­ta­tors.

Here are some snap­shots from the Whit­bourne Santa Claus pa­rade.

Candy Land was where all the kids wanted to be in Whit­bourne. The float was cre­ated for the an­nual Santa Claus pa­rade, and had many lo­cal kids ride along. They were, from left, Ethan Clarke, Jill Par­sons, Mac Phillips, Bryce Fudge, Jack Moore, Abby Phillips, Bryn­ley Fudge and Tay­lor Tem­ple.

Zoie’s fire truck was a pop­u­lar ad­di­tion to this year’s pa­rade. Rid­ing along were Ber­nadette Coombs (far left), Craig Drover (front), Zoie Drover (back left), Jean­nie Crocker (back right) and Sum­mer Vokey (in the win­dow of the fire truck). They all had a blast.

The Whit­bourne Pub­lic Li­brary had plenty of books on dis­play for the pa­rade. All the chil­dren that par­tic­i­pated in the li­brary’s en­try dressed as dif­fer­ent pop­u­lar books. They also handed out home­made book­marks and candy canes along the pa­rade route. The pa­per­back kids in­cluded, from left, No­rah Young, Ken­ley Young, Cather­ine Mercer, Bri­anna Green, Amelia Mercer, Amelia Byrne, Nathan Soo­ley and Anna John­son.

Shrek and Fiona were a pop­u­lar duo in Whit­bourne for the pa­rade.
