Santa Claus is gearing up for visits to Beaverton and Sunderland.
Drive-by parades are scheduled in both communities on Saturday (Dec. 12) night.
The holiday celebration in Beaverton runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Foster Hewitt Memorial Community Centre parking lot. Those planning to attend are asked to stay in the vehicles and enter through Lot C (the second entrance on Main Street).
The event in Sunderland – which runs from 7 to 8 p.m. – will also feature stationary floats parked along Albert Street South, starting at the public school. Motorists are being asked to access the route via River Street or Jones Street. The area will be closed to pedestrians for the duration of the parade.
