Santa parade route set

Parksville city council approved the Santa Claus Parade route through downtown.

The Dec. 3 parade will start at 5 p.m. on Morison Avenue near the clock tower and wind it’s way along a new route across downtown.

It will head up McMillian Street a block to Harrison Ave., turn towards downtown and turn up the Alberni Highway then left on Hirst Avenue in front of the Rod and Gun, left down Craig Street and right on Middleton Avenue past The News’ office.

The parade will then head up McCarter Street, away from the water, left on Jensen and left on Corfield to conclude at the Thrifty Centre.

The report from staff said traffic and safety issues for the sixth annual parade had been addressed with the organizers and RCMP including a slight change in the route and they recommended approving it.

Coun. Carrie Powell-Davidson excused herself from the vote since she is on the organizing committee and the rest of council voted in favour.
