Rapides des Joachims - Santa Claus Parade

2018 December 08

On Saturday afternoons, I usually take my elderly (96 years old) mother out for a drive. This time we drove up to des Joachims to take in the Santa Claus Parade. I found a place to park (on the wrong side of the road near the old church) where my mother could watch and stay warm from inside the car. I positioned myself on the other side of the road to take photos. There were no other spectators in this vicinity, so I got a lot of waves and friendly greetings from the parade participants. The good spirits of all involved was quite noticeable.

When the final vehicle of the parade passed, we just joined the parade on the end.
