Spa­niard’s Bay gets in mood for hol­i­days

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The vol­un­teer fire depart­ment in Spa­niard’s Bay was out in full force to lead the com­mu­nity’s an­nual Santa Claus pa­rade on Satur­day, Dec. 12.

A slew of floats were on dis­play as the pa­rade pro­ceeded along the main road zip­ping from one end of the Con­cep­tion Bay North town to an­other.

With slightly over­cast skies but no pre­cip­i­ta­tion, it was a good morn­ing to hold a pa­rade. Here are a few pho­tos The Com­pass took at the event.
