09 Nov St. Marys welcomes the Holiday season
Christmas is looking festive and fun this year in St. Marys!
The holiday season begins in St. Marys on Friday, November 17 as Santa Claus will arrive in St. Marys via the Kinsmen Santa Claus parade. The Kinsmen are planning a traditional parade with a departure from the Pyramid Recreation Centre at 7:00 p.m. This year’s parade will follow its familiar route up James Street, west on Queen Street through the downtown, then south on Water Street where the parade will end.
The lighting of the WinterLights display will illuminate Milt Dunnell Field, following the Santa Claus Parade, on Friday, November 17. The Sunset Shack will be on-site for all your warm food and beverage needs as you marvel at the displays. It’s easier than ever to support this beloved display; simply visit www.townofstmarys.com/winterlights to sponsor or donate. Your support helps to keep this magical tradition free for all to enjoy!
