Courtenay Santa Claus Parade Sunday

Bundle up your children and head to the centre of the city Sunday, as Downtown Courtenay presents the Comox Valley Christmas Parade. The annual rain-or-shine event starts at 2 p.m. on Harmston Avenue, running east down Fifth Street, and left turning onto Cliffe Avenue before ending on Fourth Street.

There will be approximately 30 entries, with the guest of honour, Santa himself, being chauffeured by the Courtenay Fire Department.

Kids have a chance to get up close and personal with Santa afterwards, as he will head over to his “sleigh” at the Scotia Bank plaza immediately following the parade.

“We have some really great sponsors this year,” said Downtown Courtenay BIA executive director Haeley Campbell, who will be the parade marshal. “There’s Mackenzie Gartside, Brian McLean Chevrolet Buick GMC, the Comox Valley Record, 97.3 The Eagle, and Thrifty Foods.”
