Stoney Creek Santa Parade

Tis the season – for parades, to celebrate the arrival of the jolly guy in the big red suit. Saturday, it was Stoney Creek’s turn. Hundreds of children and the young at heart turned out to line King St. through the downtown core, braving chilly temperatures for their chance to give a wave, and perhaps a silent wish, to Santa as he passed. Here’s a look at the parade. – Barry Gray
