Banff Santa Claus Parade Photos

08 Dec

The start of the 2009 Banff Santa Claus Parade of lights in Banff, Canada.

Nothing like a giant inflatable Santa Claus to get the crowds excited!

Santa in the Lake Louise gondola on his way to the North Pole.

The Banff Lake Louise Tourism Float and the Crasher Squirrel – that little guy gets his face in all the pics!

You wouldn’t want to get in the way of the Brewster snowcoach. These snowcoaches are used to transport tourists onto the Athabasca glacier in the summer.

Henry’s electric (local electrician) made us laugh with their float.

A family favourite – the fire truck decked out with Christmas lights!
