Santa Claus pa­rades abound

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - edi­tor@cb­n­com­pass.ca

The Com­pass has kept busy on the week­ends cov­er­ing Santa Claus pa­rades around the re­gion. In this week’s hol­i­day edi­tion of the pa­per you’ll find a whole slew of photos taken dur­ing pa­rades in Bay Roberts, Car­bon­ear, Green’s Har­bour and Hant’s Har­bour. Look for more snaps too in the Dec. 27 edi­tion.

As the skies dark­ened, res­i­dents of Green’s Har­bour lit up their trucks, quads and side-by­sides and hit the road.

The Trin­ity Bay com­mu­nity’s an­nual Santa Claus Pa­rade was a big hit for those who came out to have a gan­der as par­tic­i­pants made their way through town on Satur­day, Dec. 10. Float af­ter float brought with it hol­i­day cheer and good tid­ings.

The Com­pass found a good spot on the main high­way and had the flash all charged up to take some photos amidst the dark­ness.

The Airco Ex­press put on an im­pres­sive show, with ac­tual steam ris­ing from in­side the float.

This float had a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing — the Grinch, a snow­man, and a few folks from the pop­u­lar Dis­ney movie “Frozen.”
