A fireworks display closed out the annual Santa Claus Parade through downtown Cranbrook, Saturday, Nov.30.

Organized by JCI Kootenay, the parade adjusted its route this year to coincide with the City of Cranbrook’s Winter Block Party, a special two-day event (running through Sunday) featuring over 80 local vendors including farmers, food producers and artisans on site offering their products and services.

A huge crowd lined Baker Street from 8th Avenue right down past Baker Park for the event.
