Residents line streets for main event during busy weekend

Families lined Main Street in Woodstock Sunday afternoon, Dec. 3, to take in the highlight of a busy holiday season weekend.

The parade proved the signature event in a weekend which included Wake Up Santa courtesy of NBCC Woodstock students, Festive Pet Photos by the Carleton County Animal Shelter, the Woodstock Baptist Church’s drive-through Nativity Scene and craft sales at Woodstock First Nation and Woodstock Legion.

Check out some of the scenes from the parade:
