There’s nothing in my opinion that beats a marching band at a parade and that’s how the Kaladar parade opened on Nov. 26.
The RCSCC Quinte Cadets Marching Band of Belleville led the spectator-lined streets of Highway 7 at Kaladar with their festive and boisterous version of Frosty the Snowman. Numerous colorful floats, horse riders and a wide variety of festively clad vehicles followed behind, while float goers and individual parade marchers offered treats to youngsters, who in turn offered up their enthusiastic salutations to Santa when he passed by on his sled.
The parade began at the Kaladar Community Centre and did a loop, ending back where it started. It offered parade watchers double the fun with its repeat performance and then they were treated to hot chocolate and donuts at the community centre, where the festivities continued on indoors. The Kaladar parade is definitely back and better than ever.
