Of in­flat­able San­tas and other Moore Park mir­a­cles

Thornhill Post - - Life -

The res­i­dents of In­gle­wood Drive in Moore Park are surely on the nice list this year. The street is known for putting up large in­flat­able San­tas which draw crowds of passersby from all over the GTA. Lo­cal res­i­dent Amanda Young has been liv­ing on the street for 12 years and had a Santa on her lawn for six of those. “Last year two paramedics saw me strug­gling with our Santa be­cause it was weighed down with ice. They per­formed an ice-en-dec­tomy and told us they made a point of driv­ing down the street ev­ery day to look at the San­tas af­ter a hard shift,” she says. Young looks for­ward to the street party where they raise money for char­ity and col­lect canned goods for food banks. “It gives us a real sense of pride in our neigh­bour­hood.” The street will be full of San­tas by early De­cem­ber.
