The City of Hamilton celebrated two big events on Saturday as the arrival of Santa Claus combined with preparations for the big Grey Cup game.
There were marching bands, floats, and lots of families having a great time waiting to see Santa Claus.
Not only did this year’s parade feature festive floats, there was also a distinctive CFL theme, with fan favorites like Tiger-Cats Linebacker Simoni Lawrence.
The CHCH Community Cruiser with Morning Live Host Annette Hamm and Executive Producer Susan McDonald rolled down the street bringing holiday greetings from CHCH TV.
And the highlight of course was the arrival of Santa Claus.
After the parade, lots of people went to Fan Central on James Street North to celebrate the Grey Cup.
Festivities continued into the evening for adults at the Hamilton Convention Centre.
