GALLERY: The Santa Claus Parade

A beautiful snowfall accompanied the Revelstoke Santa Clause parade on Saturday.

Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services brought out their old and new trucks for the occassion.

It seems almost too perfect when it snows during the annual Santa Parade — like it did on Saturday as the procession of floats convoyed down First Street West and then onto Mackenzie Avenue. The streets were lined with young ones and their parents and grandparents as the paraders passed by, throwing out candy and other treats for the kids to gather up and enjoy. And, of course, Jolly St. Nick himself was the last to come, seated in the back of a pick-up truck instead of his usual spot in a horse-drawn sleigh — a result of the prohibitive cost of insuring horses for the parade. A sign of the times?
