Santa and Mrs. Claus make their way up Front Street in Greenport Village's annual Christmas parade.

As ever at this time of year, Santa has been in touch with us to say he needs your letters posted no later than December 8 - which is just over three weeks away.

"There's a good mix", she said, pointing out that this year's parade includes a few new additions including the Impact Percussion marching band and a food drive along the route aimed at filling a transit bus with food donations for area food banks.

The parade itself will start at 5 p.m.at the corner of Portage Avenue and Young Street and heads east down Portage Avenue and Young Street and heads east down Portage Avenue all the way to Main Street.

Normally, Your Downtown Timmins BIA executive director Noella Rinaldo said 12,000 to 15,000 people line the streets for the parade.

For the past several years the annual Christmas parade in Greenport Village has seen dwindling attendance, perhaps due to the abundance of activities taking place on the North Fork during the holiday season. The Welland Canada 150 Committee has sponsored maple snow taffy for the party while Talent 2 Design hands out festive cake pops and the Mayor's Youth Advisory Committee provides free hot chocolate.

"This is the flawless bow on top", she said.
