Santa Claus gets ready to make a special stop in Golden

The Santa Claus Parade in Golden will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 5 p.m.

The Santa Claus Parade in Golden will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, starting at 5 p.m.

“We will have 9th Street closed to traffic starting at 3 p.m. to facilitate the parade. For the safety and the enjoyment of the parade, we ask that everyone refrain from parking on 9th Ave N. from Sobeys to the Golden Dollar Store during this time,” said the Manager of the Kicking Horse Chamber of Commerce, Ruth Hamilton.

Since it will be the wintertime there will  be firepit warming stations to take the chill off. They will be located in the Post Office Square, the Credit Union Plaza and Kumsheem Park.

During the event there will be several fundraising barbecues and hot chocolate stands running.

If you are interested in having a float in the parade you can go to the chamber website at www. goldenchmber.bc.ca to download registration forms or drop in the chamber office at 500 10th Ave. N.

“Young and old, everyone loves a parade! Kick off the Holiday Season on Saturday Dec. 1 by enjoying fabulous savings, warm up around a fire with friends and end the day by watching jolly old St. Nick make his way through Golden,” said Hamilton.

Come early as there will be a full day of  great shopping as  stores will open their doors to help people get the perfect gift for Christmas and much more.

“Mark your calendar for ‘A Golden Shop Local – Holiday Extravaganza’ on Saturday, December 1. This is a perfect occasion to shop at home, experience the jovial vibe of Golden and enjoy some complementary festive cheer. Head out to the shops early on December 1 to take in the many all day in-store specials and unique free giveaways,” Hamilton said.
