Thompson's Annual Santa Claus Parade taking place Nov.27 with extended route for physical distancing

The Santa Claus Parade is this coming up this weekend, and the organizer of the event spoke to Arctic Radio about what will be different this time around.


Bobbi Montean says the route this year will begin by the personal care home and will end at the TRCC parking lot.


The route was extended this year to ensure spectators had more space for physical distancing.


The Salvation Army Thompson will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items, winter gear like toques, mittens, scarves, and jackets, and will have a Christmas Kettle set up as well.


Due to COVID-19 restrictions, union postal workers can't join the parade and collect letters to Santa. Children are still encouraged to send in a letter by Dec. 10.


The Santa Claus Parade will be held this Saturday starting at 1 p.m.
