The Vermilion Chamber kicked off the Christmas season with the Light Up Parade and night activities on Mainstreet which included some delicious food on November 24.

A substantial crowd enjoyed the many floats which were decorated brightly with lights and donned holiday scenes and a visit from good ol’ Santa Claus who travelled on the back of the Vermilion Fire Departments' ladder truck.

Attendees eagerly took part in a hot dog sale hosted by Vermilion’s own Junior B Tigers, which was sponsored by L & A Chartered Professional Accountants, outside of the Copper Cork Distillery.

ATB Financial held a cookie decorating event and had hot chocolate. The Red Brick had hot chocolate and mini donuts for sale, and the Night Owl provided popcorn for free.

The Rotary Club of Vermilion was on hand with cookies for sale outside of Christina’s Home Furnishings to raise funds supporting Haying in the 30’s and raised $902 which the Rotary will match to make a $1804 donation.

“It was such a nice evening outside which really helped, there were so many people out to watch the parade and it really helped us with our fundraising event. I would like to express thanks to all who supported us,” commented Rotary member Dawn Riley.
