    2017 Bowmanville Santa Claus Parade

    Our Santa Claus Parade is on Saturday November 18th.The weather for Saturday does not sound good,rain,wind and 50F. The rain is supposed to come in waves,so will have see what it is doing before I decide to walk 5 blocks to go and watch,this year's parade is going from the West end of town to the East better for security and floats not to get too far behind.I haven't missed it since 2006 when I started taking pictures of it ,so will hope the rain holds off.
    thanks very much devon. I have been boo'd.

    Always look forward to your annual Christmas parade pics, Barry! Hoping the rain holds off, or at least doesn't fall heavily. Still in the 50's here too.

    Barry, I hope the weather is good for the Christmas parade! Looking forward to your photos! It's a grey, cloudy, cold day in Chicago.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    It's too bad the weather wasn't better! It looks like everyone persevered, though! I like the horse-drawn carriage and the airplane - in the same parade!
