Holiday spirit was back in the air, as Local 793 took part in the Oakville Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, November 19.
Large crowds braved the cold to line the parade route from Lakeshore Road to Stewart Street, with Operating Engineers joining Santa, local community groups and businesses for the first in-person parade since 2019 due to the pandemic.
With a nod to this year’s theme of ‘Christmas Around the World,’ OETIO’s National boom truck was decked out as Santa’s sled on a rooftop heaving with presents, with German Nutcrackers and stockings bearing various world flags completing the look.
IUOE Local 793 thanks everyone who came out to make this day such a success and wishes everyone a bright and joyous holiday season!
Please note, you can still help bring some cheer to those in need this Christmas as our South Central offices are still accepting non-perishable food items for the food drive until December 21. Click here for details.
