Balmy weather for the last weekend of November made for comfortable spectator conditions for the annual Christmas parades in Russell Township.

Crowds of children and adults lined the parade route along Notre-Dame and other streets in Embrun Saturday night to watch the colourful parade of floats pass by. The same situation took place early Sunday afternoon in Russell along the main street through the village.

The highlight for everyone was the appearance of Santa Claus, waving to the crowds from his place at the end of the parade. More photos of the event are in this week’s edition of Le Reflet News.
