The Compass - - Front page - PHO­TOS BY AN­DREW ROBIN­SON ed­i­tor@cb­n­com­

It was a most merry scene in Vic­to­ria Satur­day, Dec. 9, as res­i­dents gath­ered to cel­e­brate the hol­i­day sea­son at the an­nual Santa Claus pa­rade.

There was some un­cer­tainty for a spell as to whether the weather would co­op­er­ate with the pa­rade, as rain poured down at times prior to the 10 a.m. start. But the rain held off, al­low­ing for those on floats and peo­ple stand­ing along the pa­rade route to have a good time.

The Com­pass found a good spot close to Pen­ney’s Hill and has these pho­tos to share from the event.
