Toronto Santa Claus Parade 2018

by Maria on November 28th, 2018

The Toronto Santa Claus Parade is the highlight of our marching season. The temperature was just above freezing and the sky was overcast, but there was no wind. These comfortable conditions drew a huge crowd, and there was excitement throughout the four-mile parade route.

For the second year, Josh's friend Russ played baritone with us. He and Josh both play with Prime Time Brass. They marched in a couple of parades on Saturday and stayed overnight to march with us on Sunday.

There were two first-timers: Bob K. on the banner and Matt S. on sousaphone. The latter freed up Mike W. to play trumpet, which in turn freed up Scott W. to play drums, which in turn freed up Scott M. to play trombone. It was a win-win-win for everyone.

The rest of the story is told is the photos below.

We have two more Christmas parades on our schedule before the 2018 marching season draws to a close. Both are on Saturday, December 1: The Caledonia Hometown Holidays Parade at noon and Scottsville's Parade of Lights at 6:15 pm. We hope to see you there!
