Christmas parade in Bath proved worth the wait

Hundreds line the streets Sunday evening as the village hosts its first
Santa parade in more than 15 years

After more than 15 years, Bath waited one extra day to host Northern
Carleton’s Christmas Parade. It proved worth the wait, with more than 30
entries and hundreds lining Bath streets.

The parade, hosted by the Florenceville-Bristol Chamber of Commerce, was
initially scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3. With the region hit by heavy
rains on Saturday, parade organizers wisely postponed Santa’s visit
until Sunday evening.

The parade began and ended at the Bath Community School, passing
hundreds of cheering families along the circular route.

Santa managed to adjust his schedule to be the evening’s guest of
honour, shouting Christmas greetings and conversing with the many
children along the route. He remained in town following the parade for a
photo session at the school.

With Christmas movies as the theme of the 2022 parade, the brightly lit
and colourful floats offered a wide array of characters from such
seasonal classics as the Grinch, Polar Express and more.

Canada Post employees from the village collected letters to Santa along
the route.
