The promised rain held off as Santa and company made their way through Bolton Saturday Dec. 1. Starting at Queensgate Boulevard and ending at Centennial Drive, the annual event sponsored by the Bolton Kinsmen Club was a wonderful family affair ushering in the Christmas season for parents and children alike.

The Kinsmen Santa Claus Parade has been a tradition since 1973, when Club members stepped up to help other members of the community struggling to put on the Parade. Since then, the Kinsmen have assumed official responsibility for the event, which is a year-long planning endeavour. The Club works with the Town of Caledon and the OPP while raising funds to ensure the Parade is everything Santa and his helpers want it to be.

Up to 55 floats made their way down the centre of downtown Bolton, each representing local businesses and organizations eager to take part in the celebrations. Musical bands present for the occasion and local dance troupes added some extra oomph to the passing floats, marking this year as another success for Santa, the Kinsmen, and their helpers.
