Chilly Santa Parade in Oxford
A chilly, windy evening wasn't enough to keep the crowds away from tonight's Christmas parade in Oxford.
Hundreds of residents and visitors lined the streets as individuals, organizations, and businesses moved slowly down Main Street, delighting children and adults alike.
Colourful floats featuring traditional characters of the season lit up the town, as first responders and others handed out candy to the assembled crowds.
Helping folks brave the cold was the Oxford Public Library, where staff handed out free cups of hot chocolate to warm frigid fingers.
This year's parade featured a ‘Sensory Friendly’ area for people to enjoy along a section of Water Street. Sensory Friendly means floats refrained from blowing loud horns and sirens along this section of the parade route.
After the event, children gathered at the Heritage Square gazebo to await the arrival of Santa Claus, who sailed along in his reindeer-drawn sleigh at the tail end of the parade.
