Local 793 members and their families participated in the Oakville Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017.

The union was a gold sponsor of the event and had a float in the parade.

Theme of the parade was A Canadian Christmas through the Decades. Local 793 chose to mark Christmas in the 70s.

There was a slight drizzle of rain in the air, but the parade route was lined with thousands of children and parents.

Many of the participants in the Local 793 contingent were dressed as toys from the 70s.

The parade wound its way through the downtown area.

Children rode on the float.
