The Santa Claus Parade 2011 entertained the crowds downtown Kamloops on Saturday and delivered the star of the parade with enthusiasm. The parade bravely walked right into the cold winds and put on a great parade with lots of Christmas spirit and fun for all to see. The 31st annual Santa Claus Parade took an hour to pass by as the kids eagerly awaited for Santa to arrive. The theme for the parade this year was 'Celebrating Kamloops' and that they all did well. Sports, lifestyle and more were well represented with 76 entries.
Santa and his helpers have lots of work to get done before the big day arrives so they wave goodbye to everyone after taking time out of their busy schedule to help 'Celebrate Kamloops'.
Now that Santa has been here, we can get serious about the Christmas season and the excitement, shopping, planning, concerts and entertainment begins. I think it makes a believer in all of us when we see Santa riding his sleigh to ring in the Christmas season in Kamloops.
Another job well done by Gay Pooler and the DBA showing how they Celebrate Kamloops and giving us another reason why we love Kamloops .
