Santa Delayed!

Pipestone Flyer

The Santa Claus Parade that was scheduled for Friday, November 28, 2014 has been rescheduled for Friday, December 19th. This was a result of a major winter storm that dropped over 30 centimeters of snow and saw temperatures hitting the -30 C degree level over the two days of Thursday & Friday.

Santa felt the weather was too severe for all the boys and girls who wanted to show their parents Santa Claus and his elves. With the cooperation of the Leduc Downtown Progress Association, Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Leduc the Parade will start at 7Pm with free festivities beginning after the parade.

The CP Holiday Train is still scheduled for Monday, December 8th between 7PM and 9PM. The train is scheduled to arrive at 8:15PM. The No Frills Parking Lot is where people can meet up with the train with Odds and Roxanne Potvin providing the entertainment. Cash and food donations will be accepted at both Santa’s Parade and the Holiday Train.
