This year’s 100 Mile House Santa Claus Parade was bigger and better than ever.

With 50 registered floats and hundreds of spectators, community spirit was seen throughout the downtown core. Not even the cold weather deterred those who came out to watch the parade and cheer on the participants.

Afterward, the South Cariboo Health Foundation officially began its Starry Nights Campaign, lighting up the 100 Mile District General Hospital.
