Brigus pa­rade go­ers march through sea­son’s first snow­fall

The Compass - - Editorial - BY CHRIS LEWIS chris.lewis@cb­n­com­pass.ca

The first sig­nif­i­cant snow­fall of the year did lit­tle to fal­ter the hol­i­day spirit shown by res­i­dents of Brigus dur­ing their Christ­mas pa­rade.

Heavy snowflakes fell from the sky on Satur­day af­ter­noon, Dec. 16, but pa­rade watch­ers and par­tic­i­pants still man­aged to throw to­gether a suc­cess­ful pa­rade, march­ing and driv­ing through the streets of the com­mu­nity.

The Com­pass caught the pa­rade at the very be­gin­ning, near St. Ed­wards, to cap­ture some pho­tos of the event.

A fire truck made its way through the snow­fall, lead­ing Satur­day’s pa­rade.

Mickey Mouse, Olaf, and sev­eral other rec­og­niz­able char­ac­ters marched their way through the snow.

Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and some mem­bers of the fire depart­ment rode along­side some rein­deer on the back of a Home Hard­ware truck.

The chil­dren warmed ev­ery­one up with their smiles atop their float.

This truck of­fered some sea­son’s greet­ings to pa­rade watch­ers.
