Plenty of action at Heart’s Content parade
The Heart’s Content Santa Claus Parade sneaks up on you.
Leaving from the lighthouse and following a winding road before it breaks out by the government wharf, chances are you’re going to hear the whap of a cadets’ snare drum before you see the parade. When you see it, however, chances are you’re going to be impressed by in the enthusiasm and the floats in the parade.
On Dec. 13, there were superheroes, Hawaiian hula par- ties, gingerbread houses and even a goat waltzing along in the parade. Weather got a bit chilly but that wasn’t enough to turn their smiles upside down.
There was plenty of enthusiastic waving as the parade hit every part of the town. The Compass was there and captured these images.
This gingerbread house was one of the floats in the parade. Shown here, from left, are Mackenzie Piercey, Ashley Piercey and Alison Piercey.
