You can get some early facetime with Santa this weekend in Bala.

The first Muskoka Santa Claus Parade is running in the community this Sunday. The parade will start off at The Kee at 1pm and move down Highway 169 to Burgess Avenue. Parade officials say there will be lots of floats to check out during the 41st run of this annual parade. After the parade, Santa will be visiting with kids at the Bala Community Centre. Families can also take part in a free skate from 2pm to 4pm at the arena.

Santa Claus will return to Muskoka Lakes Township for another parade in Port Carling on November 18th.
