Smiths Falls Santa Claus Parade

It was a warm, grey day for our Santa Claus parade but I think everyone in town was there. The main street was lined up forever. We stood on the corner of Elmsley and Beckwith Streets and had a good view of the parade coming toward us and turning the corner. The Macy's parade it's not but for a small town it was well done.

The Gordon Pipe Band playing Jingle Bells as they passed us. Nothing like Jingle Bells on bagpipes!

Our mayor, Dennis Staples

Chimo Cheerleaders (elementary school)

And finally, the jolly old elf himself!

Someone's little dog was doing tricks on command.
