Hundreds turned out to watch the annual Sooke Santa Parade on Sunday.

The event included multiple floats, two marching bands and a visit from Santa.

This was the first year the Naden Band of the Canadian Navy participated in the event.

This is the second year the Sooke Lions Club have hosted the event, and many volunteers from the Lions, Lionesses and Harbourside Lions were in attendance to help the parade run smoothly.

This year, EMCS students organized the after-parade festivities which included live music, Christmas activities, baking and beverages.
