What a lovely way to enjoy the close of November as it shifts into December – a month full of promise….
Santa Claus parade in Sherbrooke
On Sunday, Santa Claus returns to Sherbrooke. He leaves around 3pm from the corner of 13th Avenue and King Street East, with a whole host of fairytale characters. Music, dancing, hot chocolate, a campfire, treats, fireworks and the lighting of the giant Christmas tree. Let the festive season begin!
