The parade will wind through the streets of downtown Trail tonight at 5 p.m.

Santa’s Candy Parade is getting ready to hit the streets of downtown Trail today, Saturday, Dec. 8 at 5 p.m.

“Everyone is excited to see the decorated floats, get some candy, and wave to Santa and Mrs. Clause on the fire truck,” says Andrea Jolly, City of Trail events coordinator.

“We want to make this a fun-filled parade for everyone, so please take a few minutes to review the public safety messages below. Please share these safety messages with your family and friends who plan to attend the parade.”

City of Trail’s safety message:

• Please remain on the sidewalks to keep a safe distance between you and the parade floats and vehicles.
