SOUTH GREY NEWS STAFF –

Although there was no snow, temperatures were a little warmer than Santa often encounters, it didn’t stop him and Mrs Claus from heading to Durham for their annual Christmas Parade December 2.

With dozens of floats in this year's Canadian Christmas themed parade, sponsored by the Durham Firefighters Association, people lined both sides of Garafraxa Street to watch as local businesses and organizations travelled through Durham's downtown core.

Santa and Mrs Claus followed in their sleigh, waving and ringing in the holiday season before arriving at the Durham Fire Hall, where they took time to meet with excited children, before heading back to the North Pole to continue their preparations for Christmas.
