It was 36 days before Christmas and all through the Town, not a creature was stirring except the thousands in attendance at the 2010 Santa Claus Parade in Oakville!
This year’s Parade took place on Saturday, November 20th starting at 9:00am and began at Reynolds travelling along Lakeshore Road, then along Kerr Street, finishing at Kerr and Stewart.
The weather co-operated too and made it a great day.
The day started with the rumble of planes buzzing Downtown Oakville. What an airshow!
The streets were lined with kids of all ages enjoying the floats, the candy and the music. This year’s theme of “A Reel Christmas at the Movies” was very evident in many of the consumes and floats in the Parade.
The Kinsmen Club of Oakville collected non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army. Everyone was encouraged to bring at least one non-perishable food item to the Parade. Cash donations were also accepted.
The Oakville Professional Fire Fighters were on hand to accept new, unwrapped toys from Parade goers.
The Fun Group of Families and Friends of Falgarwood celebrated their 16th year of selling noses for charity at the Parade. Dressed as clowns, the group sold their famous “red noses” on Parade Day for $2, with all proceeds this year supporting Wellspring-Halton.
Can’t wait to see what next year’s theme will be!
