Cuddle up with the Library in the Christmas parade
For 2020 the Library is celebrating HYGGE - a Danish and Norwegian word for coziness.
The modified 84th Annual Port Hope Santa Claus Parade will be a drive-by experience Saturday November 28 between 12 pm and 2 pm. This format will allow spectators to enjoy live music & a colourful display of community floats safely from their own vehicles on the LTWMF Access Road (off of Baulch Road). Grab a cozy blanket and join our celebration of the season.
