The Santa Claus Pa­rade in Pla­cen­tia — a part­ner­ship be- tween the town and the Dunville Lions Club — went ahead on Dec. 4 af­ter a one-day de­lay.

The 10th an­nual edi­tion of the pa­rade lined up at the Col- lege of the North At­lantic and cir­cled the com­mu­nity, stop­ping at the town hall.

The best en­tries were ac­knowl­edged there, hot choco- late was served and Santa dis­trib­uted gifts to chil­dren in the Arts Cen­tre.

Lead­ing en­tries were Matt’s Auto (com­mer­cial), Pla­cen- tia Spe­cial Olympics (walk­ing group) and Pla­cen­tia Lions Club (vol­un­teers).
