Santa arrived in Alma on Dec. 22 on a Case IH square baler to the delight of children and adults.
It was a safe journey through the community thanks to the volunteer marshals and the OPP, who directed the traffic away from the parade route.
Phil Gravelle from the Advertiser did an outstanding job reporting on the festive participants on floats or dancing, from kids with four legs to those with two, tractors, and graders too big to put under a Christmas tree and the politicians who oversee the kingdom
To misquote Advertiser columnist Kelly Waterhouse, sometimes we have to dig deep to find the pearl in the day – but not in Alma on Dec. 22. Thanks, all.
