Under a clear, crisp night sky, residents gathered together in Florenceville-Bristol on Sunday, Nov. 26, for the first annual District of Carleton North Santa Claus Parade.

Hundreds of people and vehicles lined the street, three and four deep in places. Parade Marshall Glenn Canam led the procession from the Florenceville Middle School to the Town Hall on Station Street.

Florenceville-Bristol Chamber of Commerce representative Barbara Meed said there were nearly 40 parade entries, making this one of the largest parades in recent years. One of those entries included the Canada Post walkers, who collected letters from 37 children to deliver to Santa.

“I am so touched and delighted that this effort worked so well,” Meed said.
