Santa Claus came to town on Saturday night as the stars sparkled over Sault Ste. Marie for the 2020 “Reverse” Santa Claus Parade and First Responders Salute.
Chris Oldcorn and Colette Linden opened this momentous parade alongside Santa with a ribbon-cutting and then the first cars came through.
Airport officials say 1030 cars rolled through the airport to salute the OPP, Fire Services from both Prince Township and the Soo, Paramedic Services, Anishnabek Police Services, Canada Border Services, Sault Area Hospital and even Dash from the Soo Greyhounds.
There were several other vendors in attendance as spectators drove by to pay homage to our first responders.
Cars lined up from 4 p.m. onward to enter the airport and traffic backed up along Airport Road and all down Second Line as well as Base Line Road.
