It was a very chilly evening in Echo Bay, but the warmth of the community was evident as I attended the Parade of Lights this last Saturday. I admit that I haven’t spent too much time in Echo Bay, so I was more than thankful when I saw the guiding light of two OPP cruisers leading me toward the hub of the township. There, residents and visitors alike were dressed in heavy outerwear, and for good reason; this was very frigid outdoor event.
However, the community was welcoming and there was a real Christmas spirit happening. A warming station was providing hot drinks and snacks, Santa was listening to the Christmas wishes of children and adults alike, and burning barrels were providing some relief against the cold for those who gathered around.
I’m very thankful that I was able to enjoy this event and take some wonderful pictures. I’m already looking forward to next year!
