DBRC pulls plug on Bathurst's 'Santa Claus Parade'

Streetsville Santa Claus Parade

Bathurst's Santa Claus parade won't be taking place this year.

The Downtown Bathurst Revitalization Corporation pulled the plug on the annual event, slated for December 4th, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

DBRC's Chris Daigle says organizers had concerns over properly controlling a large gathering.

The parade has been an annual tradition since the 1980s.
