Kenora's giant Christmas tree has arrived at the corner of Second and Main. Residents took photos and video, as a flatbed trailer transported the tree through the city this morning.
A special tree-lighting ceremony is set for Friday evening. It includes indigenous drummers, as well as special security guards from Treaty Three Police Service.
Kenora's Santa Claus parade is set for Saturday, Nov. 25, while Santa visits Dryden the following Friday, Dec. 1 and Sioux Lookout on December 10.
