Santa Claus hits the pa­rade cir­cuit

The Compass - - News -

If you didn’t catch him this past week­end in St. John’s, don’t fret, be­cause Santa Claus is vis­it­ing many Con­cep­tion Bay towns in the com­ing days.

Com­mu­ni­ties will host Santa Claus parades just about ev­ery week­end lead­ing up to Christ­mas Day. The jolly old elf is set to take a break from his du­ties at the North Pole to bring greet­ings to chil­dren through­out the area.
