For the second year, the Edmonton Christmas Parade was held after dark which only made the multi colored twinkling lights more beautiful. The theme was Festive Flicks a Parade of Beloved Christmas Shows & Movies. See if you can guess which Christmas Classic each float portrays.

The grand marshal was bull rider Connor Jessie and at the end of the parade, Santa made a guest appearance.

This years the parade was much larger than in 2022 and three floats held a special surprise for the crowds as they blew what appeared to be snow onto the onlookers to the delight of many. Of course, it was not snow, but only a foamy bubble mixture.

So for anyone who was unable to attend, here are a few photos.
