SANTA'S BACK IN TOWN AND HE'S COMING TO CAPREOL ON NOVEMBER 25TH
Capreol will once again be celebrating the Christmas season in style with the return of the much anticipated Candle Walk, Tree Lighting and Capreol Santa Claus Parade.
The Annual Tree Lighting activities will begin at 5pm with the Candle Walk at the Northern Ontario Railway Museum. Attendees will then participate in a Candle Walk to the Cenotaph where Carol Singing will be led by the Capreol Community Choir. The Tree Lighting will follow, along with Horse drawn wagon rides by Wagon Wheel Ranch. Mr & Mrs. Claus will visit with children at the Cenotaph Gazebo and then they will be whisked away to their float in the parade.
The Capreol Food Bank “Food Drive” is also taking place and food is being collected at local businesses around town. PLEASE BRING a non-perishable food donation and support this important Food Drive. Bins will be located at the Cenotaph Gazebo & also upstairs at the Arena following the parade.
