Numerous streets in and around downtown Winnipeg will be closed on Sat., Nov. 18 from approximately 1:30 p.m. until approximately 8 p.m.to accommodate the Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade.

With a theme of Christmas Around the World, this year's Santa Claus Parade in Timmins is November 18 starting at 6 p.m.

Behind the wheel of a bright red 1959 Chevrolet pickup truck, Mrs. Claus scoped out the parade route and even peeked into a few downtown Timmins businesses.

"We're quite excited about it", she said.

The parade starts at 4 p.m.at Canadian Tire Financial Services on East Main Street, following the thoroughfare to the Civic Square.

This year's theme is "150 years of Christmas" in honour of Canada's 150th birthday.

The fun doesn't end with the parade either as a festive celebration completes the affair in front of the Civic Square. Santa will stick around to meet with the kids and officially light up the city tree and new this year a holiday movie, Merry Madagascar, will be screened on the Civic Square's outdoor big screen at 5:15 p.m.

"This is the ideal bow on top", she said.
