Santa Claus parade cancelled in Parksville

Parksville’s Santa Claus Parade has been cancelled, but there’s still a chance to revive it, said main organizer Carrie Powell-Davidson.

One of the region’s major Christmas events, it kicked off the Christmas season with over 30 entries and floats in recent years, but the support just isn’t there this year.

A city councillor, Powell-Davidson took over coordinating the parade a couple years ago from the Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Business Association (PDBA).

Those organizations continued to help for the last couple years and chamber executive director Kim Burden said they offered to help again this year, but not to the same degree, citing their economic development work as time consuming for the staff.
