A holiday procession with a special guest will be making its way through Walnut Grove on Dec. 18.

With help of Aldor Acres, paid on call firefighters from  Hall 8 will be escorting Santa on a circuitous route through Walnut Grove on Sunday evening, Dec. 18,  from 6 to 8 p.m.

The parade, which will include carolling, will start at the fire hall on 208 Street and 96 Avenue and will travel past Gordon Greenwood Elementary, James Kennedy Elementary, Walnut Grove Secondary School, and Walnut Grove Community Centre. It will then go across 88 Avenue, up past Alex Hope Elementary School, and wind back through the neighbourhoods between 212 Street, 214B  Street, and 95 Avenue, across 96 Avenue, up Yeomans Crescent, and then through Derby Hills.

Walnut Grove firefighters hope neighbours will enjoy the festive event. Donations of non-perishable food items will be accepted.
