MONTREAL- Grab your elfin hats and warm mittens, cuz Santa Claus is coming downtown.
For the sixth year running, the folks who do the Quebec City Carnival are putting on the show in Montreal, and they promise new costumes, new themes and new floats this year.
The parade will feature more than 1,500 participants, dancers, brass bands, elves and prancing reindeer, more than 20 mechanized floats large and small and the classic Christmas Star Fairy, once again played by Quebeçois singer Ima.
The parade will start at 11 a.m. at Fort and Ste. Catherine Sts. and go eastward to St. Urbain St.
