2015 Santa Claus Parade rolls through Winnipeg
Over 100 floats take part in annual event on Portage Avenue
Thousands of Winnipeggers lined the edges of Portage Avenue Saturday to take in the 2015 Santa Claus Parade.
Over 100 floats of all colours and configurations eked east down Portage Avenue between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
The parade shared the road with a few more floats this year that were part of the 103rd Grey Cup celebrations.
Ron Mark, the executive director of the Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade, said organizers were excited to combine the traditional Grey Cup parade with the annual Santa Claus Parade.
“The flavour of our parade, especially at the front end, is a little more football oriented,” Mark said, adding the commissioner of the CFL rode along with the Grey Cup in one of the first floats of the day.
