Santa Claus parade Saturday night

December's right around the corner and the Claus family has put Fort St. John at the top of its holiday calendar.

The Christmas couple arrive Saturday, Dec. 1, bringing with them a brisk but balmy -6 C day, and a parade that runs from 108 Avenue at 98 Street to Centennial Park.

The parade begins at 5 p.m.

The city will close 100 Street from 96 Avenue to 100 Avenue for the parade from 4 to 7 p.m. No parking signs will be placed along the parade route 48 hours in advance. Detour signage will be in place.

Residents are asked to park on 100 Street north of 100 Avenue to watch the parade. There will be no parking in the North Peace Arena and Kids Arena parking lots as the parade will be unloading there.

The North Peace Cultural Centre will hold warm-up activities prior to the parade starting at 3 p.m., with hot chocolate at the ready and the Northern Lights Youth Choir and the Northern Winds Community Band filling the theatre with a holiday sing-a-long.

At Centennial Park, there will be a Christmas tree light-up, bonfire, hot dogs, and more hot chocolate as the Claus family mingles with residents.
