I was enjoying watching the Santa parade in Enderby recently and I got to wondering why this city in which I live and dearly love (Salmon Arm, of course) does not have this wonderful event.
We also don’t seem to have any bonfires burning either like we used to have.
Why does our city tolerate what amounts to a pariah status compared to other towns and cities in B.C.? If a small town like Enderby can put on a Santa parade, what is stopping us? City hall? Someone else?
I am hoping someone can answer this question as it seems quite ridiculous when a neighbouring small town can put on a parade while we have to go out of town to enjoy such a festive event.
Seems like we have to go out of town for more and more these days, doesn’t it?
