The annual Santa Claus Parade of Lights was a success Friday night. The nice weather and vehicles covered in lights attracted a lot of people to the parade down Main Street. Judges decided the best entry was from the City of Flin Flon and they receive a six hundred dollar advertising package from the main parade sponsors the Reminder and 102.9 CFAR. As the parade was lining up CFAR Manager Dianne Russell said they were pleased with the parade and the support they received. She said they were very excited about the weather, it’s not that cold out and they expect the street to be full of kids and they were looking forward to the evening and it’s another great way to kick off the Christmas season. She added this year they again had the Main Street Committee which is a sub-committee of the Chamber of Commerce that put this on as well as support from Hudbay and they also had a little bit of help from the Tire Shop this year in decorating.
There’s another Christmas event coming up on Main Street, Moonlight Madness Family Night on Friday, December 15th from 5 to 8 pm.
