PHOTOS: Rotary Christmas Parade rolls through historic downtown Chilliwack

Thousands of people came out to see lights and hear sounds of annual festive parade

The rain held off as thousands of people gathered in downtown Chilliwack to take in the annual Rotary Christmas Parade.

There was more than one drum band, including Chilliwack’s own Sardis Drumline, plus there were antique cars, cyclists, winter-themed floats, horses, dancers, princesses and of course Santa.

People in the parade tossed candy canes, chocolates and other goodies to the spectators.

The event featured more than 70 entries which made their way from Chilliwack Secondary School down Yale Road and through the historic District 1881 on Saturday, Dec. 2. From Five Corners, the parade continued along Wellington Avenue and then turned onto College Street before heading back to the school.
