On Saturday November 24 2007, the 11th annual Barrie Santa Clause Parade was held. More than 45 elaborate floats participated. The parade began at 5:00 P.M.
The Tian Guo Marching Band returned for a second year in a row for the festivities. The snowy streets and cold weather did not discourage the thousands of eager audience members who came out to watch the parade.
The spectators warmly welcomed the Falun Gong Band. They clapped their hands after each song and many sang along with the popular "Jingle Bells" tune.
