Xmas parade needs floats

The Fort Frances Christmas Parade is in need of your help.

“The parade is Dec. 7 at 5 p.m., we need floats,” said parade organizer Scott Krienke-Turvey.

“This is a community Christmas parade and without community involvement on both sides of it, it doesn't work. Right now we have a limited number of floats, so we're hoping to double or triple that number.”
