Santa Claus is coming to town!

It's been an exciting afternoon at the Hometown Holiday Festival.  What better way to shut the night down than with the Polar Parade, welcoming the big man, himself!

This year's parade theme is "Blast from the Past". Join us in bringing the Spirit of Christmas alive with parade float entries from around the region themed to some of your favourite retro Christmas décor & movies. The parade would not be complete without the man himself, Santa! See his rosy red cheeks and thick white beard nestled atop his roaring big belly as Santa brings our parade to a close. Where better to see the Spirit of Christmas?
