The Portage Rotary Club and The Portage & District Chamber of Commerce would like to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved in the Rotary Santa Claus Parade of Lights! The RCMP, City of Portage, Stride Place, Crescent Heights Chapel and Operation Red Nose all played a huge role! Thank you to all of the volunteers and friends of Rotary that helped us out and of course to all of the participants that put in a float!
We counted about 60 floats in the parade and a record number of onlookers to watch the parade! Perfect weather for a great event!
