It is this Saturday (December 5) that the Santa Claus parade will take place in the streets of Mansfield and Fort-Coulonge. From 5 p.m., residents will be invited to be on the outskirts of the streets to wave a hand to the people who will participate in the parade. Mansfield Fire Chief, Patrick Bertrand, says he made sure he got permission from the authorities before going ahead with the parade.
“We will ask everyone to respect the instructions and even if we are outside, we want people to wear the mask. We want everything to be perfect, we are lucky to be able to do it, we have to make sure ” explained Patrick Bertrand.
The parade route will start at the Mansfield barracks and end at the Center de loisir des Draveurs, or the arena, located in Fort-Coulonge.
