It was the perfect weather for a parade, although people would hope for a bit of snow for the annual Kincardine Santa Claus parade, held Saturday night.
And it was a good thing the weather was balmy with a touch of breeze as the lengthy parade wended its way from the Sutton Park Mall to Victoria Park, taking about 45 minutes from start to finish.
The huge crowd was thrilled as young and old, alike, were fascinated by the magical, coloured lights and Christmas music emanating from the many floats, featuring bands, groups, organizations, schools and businesses.
Organized by the Kincardine and District Chamber of Commerce, the theme this year was "Red and White" in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday, and most floats carried those colours in a variety of shapes and forms.
Santa Claus and his reindeer brought up the end of the parade, and then Santa visited with the children inside the Scougall Gallery at the Kincardine Arts Centre, with the Elves, Hannah Beaune and Takyra Steinman, handing out candy.
Christmas is just three weeks away!
