Highlights from the Downtown St. John’s Christmas Parade

Another year has come and the 2016 installment of the annual Downtown St. John’s Christmas Parade went off with a Ho! Ho! Ho!

Sunday, December 4 to the delight of children and their families, the parade marched through the streets of the Newfoundland and Labrador capital, with the big man himself marking the end.  Here are just a few highlight photos and clippings from the parade which saw Santa do the dabbin’ dance!

Some news from Bruce after assisting Santa this weekend…

Bruce had a busy weekend as he assisted Santa with a number of visits in Newfoundland and Labrador. Following some of the stops, Bruce had this to say:

Santa had quite a day with five visits starting at 10 am and ending at 6 pm and we met over 400 children. So five teddies are in the arms of five children tonight. But several of these visits were to companies who ask how Santa can be paid and the answer is always the same. Help Santa assist Rotary eliminate polio in the world. So while five children are sleeping with their teddies, the contributions today when matched will buy polio vaccine for 5000 children in Pakistan and Nigeria.

Yes Rudolph, Santa is tired but he had a wonderful day.

The local CBC also caught up with Santa during his visit to the Janeway Children’s Hospital in St. John’s, and filed this report:

And in keeping with the theme of this post, here is an update from Santa about one young child he met some years ago:

Santa’s teddy is sleeping tonight in Torbay, NL with a very special little boy. Santa met Graysen three years ago on Christmas Eve in the Children’s Hospital. Then, for the first time ever, we met again for the second Christmas Eve two years ago. Yes, this little guy spends a great deal of time with his wonderful mother Alice in and out of the Janeway Childcare Centre. Sleep well little Graysen. You are a precious elf and we think of you every day. Enjoy my Teddy.
