Stittsville was in a celebrating mood on December 2nd as another Stittsville Parade of Lights has come and gone with a glow of holiday cheer.
As always, I would like to thank the Stittsville Village Association for all of their hard work in organizing the parade. Every year, a great deal of work is required to assemble this large community event so I would also like to acknowledge all of the volunteers that helped to facilitate the parade. I would also like to commend the efforts of our friends at the Ottawa Fire Services, Ottawa Police Services, and Ottawa Paramedic Services for their support. Thank you as well to all who participated with decorating such amazing floats or marching for the pleasure of the community.
It was a warm and colourful night where the children looked on with wonder and joy, anxiously awaiting the arrival of dear ol’ Saint Nick right here in Stittsville.
Along the parade route, it was quite evident to see the happy faces on children and families enjoying the evening!
From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank all residents for coming out to show their festive spirits on this incredible holiday tradition. The togetherness of families and friends I witness every year at this time is a gentle reminder of just how important this local tradition is for bringing the community together in celebration.
