Winnipeggers bundled up for the 2017 Santa Claus Parade last Satuday — which is its 108th year!
A larger crowd compared to other years came expectedly estimated at 60,000 people.
Parade manager Monica Derksen said they also expected for up to 15,000 people who attended the Winnipeg Jets game at Bell MTS Place who could become spectators at the parade.
The 2017 parade has 70 floats and 700 volunteers with festivities beginning with a Camerata Nova concert at Manitoba Hydro Place and block parties with different themes.
CKJS Radio 810 AM joined HOT 100.5 and Energy 106 as we kicked off the parade with a fun party at Portage and Main.
