Santa Claus has a special place in his heart for the Municipality of Mississippi Mills. The Town is home to two Santa Parades, a daytime event Saturday in Pakenham, and the Sunday Parade beginning at 5pn in downtown Almonte.
That’s Tiffany McLaren with the municipality. She says the Sunday evening event generally attracts between sixty and seventy floats, all a-twinkle. McLaren says spectators can then gather at upstairs at the arena to meet St. Nick, and enjoy hot dogs and hot chocolate courtesy of the Lions Club.
