St. Paul holds first ever Christmas parade

A moonlight holiday parade was held in St. Paul for the first time, Friday night.

ST. PAUL - The first ever Hometown Holidays Moonlight Parade drew a crowd on Friday night.

The holiday-themed parade was a first for St. Paul, and was organized by the St. Paul & District Chamber of Commerce, with help from the St. Paul Ag Society. Floats began the one kilometre route at the Lions park on main street, and made their way toward the UFO landing pad.

Leading the parade was Santa Claus, who hitched a ride on top of the St. Paul Fire Department's aerial fire truck. Holiday music played and children were in awe of the bright display. 

A number of businesses and community groups also took part in the parade, along with MLA David Hanson and his wife Donna.
