At the end of the Santa Claus parade, the switch is turned on at the tree lighting ceremony at the Lacombe Memorial Centre.

Donations of candy for the parade are needed and can be brought to the December 6 chamber meeting.

Afterwards, Santa himself will be available to meet the young ones (and the young at heart) at the Gravenhurst Opera House.

Anyone planning to send a letter to Santa Claus with their Christmas wish list enclosed, can drop it into Santa's mailbox (no stamps required) at Mt.

Breakfast With Santa will be held Saturday, Dec. 2 from 8:30-9:30 at the public library. The Parade will leave the park at 6 p.m.

One big change for this year's parade involves sweet treats.

"Even adults will run right up to vehicles, and children run right up under there, and the person driving doesn't even see them", said Planning Technician Billie Hall, who oversaw the rewriting of parade guidelines.

Sans candy, participants will make their way down the parade route, waving and greeting bystanders. Dubbed the "oldest and coldest" parade in OR and drawing between 8,000 and 10,000 spectators along its 2½-mile route, the parade was to be Springfield's 65th consecutive event. But that means that entrants don't have to begin assembling in the parking lot of the Walmart, WinCo and True Value on Olympic Street until 11 a.m. From start to finish, the parade should last approximately 45 minutes. As of press time, the afternoon high Sunday is expected to be 58 degrees under a bright, sunny sky. Temperatures on Friday night will be in the 40s and there is little chance of rain.
