Christmas Parade

On Saturday night, like the rest of the city, I ventured to main street to get in the festive season by watching the Christmas Parade. It was really fun getting in the mood for Christmas even if it was only November 20. I don’t know how many floats were actually in the parade but it was a decent turn out for this year. The weather was a little chilling, but better than it could have been. It had been snowing solidly for 24 hours and had just let up for the parade which made it all that much more enjoyable.

The following are the pictures I was able to take. I must admit I am not a very good photographer and wasn’t able to get my camera on the proper setting for the parade so the majority of my photos came out blurry, but none the less here are some alright ones.

  • When I was a kid, the Yellowknife Santa Claus parade was pretty much Santa Claus on a Mack Truck and a procession of firetrucks. While that was still fun, I can’t believe how far it has come. It gets bigger and better every year. My kids love the magic of coming out in the dark at night to meet their friends and see the parade. Kudos to the City and all the community organizations and businesses that participate.

  • I just thought I’d let the internet know that somebody left a camera with Santa Clause parade photos on it in the NACC theatre on Saturday night. It was given to the NACC staff. If you’re missing one, contact NACC.
