2017 Santa Claus Parade a Success

Despite the early-season snowfall, the 2017 Hazeldean Mall Kanata Santa Claus Parade was a success. In addition to the floats, music, and the look at Santa for the children lining the streets, the parade collected over 4000 pounds of food for the Kanata Food Cupboard, and over $4000 in donations.

A big thank you to all the participants, volunteers, and organizations who donated time, funds, or services.

We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
