Santa could not have picked a more perfect day to make his warm-up visit to Orillia. The sun was out in full force and it felt like the warmest day since the Remembrance Day snow storm. That could be the reason for what appeared to be a larger crowd than the past couple years.
The yardstick? Parking. The habit of arriving just in time for the start almost was a bad plan due to no parking available in the usual place when there has been plenty of room before.
Nevertheless, everyone, especially the children enjoyed the fantastic effort the chamber of commerce in to deliver a great day.
