Simcoe Christmas Panorama

Simcoe Christmas Panorama

 Location: Simcoe, Ontario, Canada
Address:  50 Bonnie Dr
Date: Dec 2017
Website:  www.simcoepanorama.ca

    About 60 years ago the town of Simcoe had a Santa Claus Parade which was rained out.  The organizers left the parade floats in the park.  The following year they decided that instead of the parade, they would leave the floats in the park for everyone to come and see them over the holiday season.

Christmas Lights Up The Park.

  Through the years the event has grown.  Now each December the whole park is covered in lights and filled with displays.

Christmas Lighthouse.

  Wellington Park has a small river that runs through it so the lights surround the river's edge.  There is even a small Christmas coloured lighthouse on the bend.

4 and 20 Blackbirds.  That's 24 Per Pie.

  Some of the floats featured rhymes such as "4 and 20 Blackbirds".

I'll Huff And I'll Puff And...Wait How Much Is The Rent?

  Or "Three Little Pigs".

Polar Bears.Nativity Scene.
Your'e A Mean One Mr Grinch.
Kevin!!  Merry Chirstmas.

  Still other floats featured polar bears, nativity scenes or holiday classics like The Grinch.  The Simcoe Firefighters Association sponsored a Minion filled float.

Santa's Reindeer.

  Santa Claus was everywhere around the park.  Santa was flying by in his sleigh pulled by his reindeer.

The Santa "Claus" Maria.

  Santa was out on a boat in the river.

I'll Be Back.  Next Christmas.

There was a glowing red eye Terminator Santa.

Move Over Jack.  Its Santa-In-The-Box.
 Christmas Moose.

  There was a Santa-In-The-Box on a float full of toys and a moose dressed in a Santa outfit.

Santa Is Beside Himself.

  Even the real Santa was there greeting children next to a giant Santa statue.  Ho! Ho! Ho!

Gingerbread House.
 Christmas Tree Scene.
 It's So Much Colder In Simcoe Than Cape Town.
 Scrooge Is Visited By A Ghost.

  Around the park were little houses that you could look inside.  They were filled with candy, penguins, Christmas trees or even an old man in his pyjamas (aka Ebeneezer Scrooge).

Dragon.

  Across the road from the park were a few other creatures like this dragon (above).

Light In The Night.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

  We appreciated all the work that went into setting up this display and see why many people make it a holiday tradition to give Simcoe a visit.  On a cold night walking around in the park, we also appreciated the booth selling hot beverages.  Soon we left the coloured lights behind and went off to enjoy the warmth of our nearby bed and breakfast accomodations.
