Spaniard’s Bay gets in mood for holidays
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.
