PLACENTIA, NL — Placentia was more than ready to welcome Santa Claus this past weekend.
The jolly old soul, wearing his customary red suit, visited the town Saturday afternoon for the annual Santa Claus parade. A large crowd congregated in the community to watch the parade weave its way through the local streets. They gathered afterword inside the Placentia Bay Cultural Arts Centre, where Santa presented his younger friends with gift bags.
Freelance photographer Tom O'Keefe attended the event Saturday and has these photos to share.
