On Friday, December 2, Vankleek Hill celebrated the start of the Christmas season with a parade down Main Street. There were numerous floats, tractors, horses and cars, all festooned in Christmas lights and decorations. The SD&G Highlanders Infantry unit joined the parade this year with a large army truck loaded with members of the SD&G Highlanders cadet corps. The cadet pipes and drum band preceded them down Main Street.
Other floats included entries by Pleasant Corner Public School, local businesses and community groups. After the parade, Champlain Township Mayor Gary Barton presented a plaque to parade organizer Phil Arber, thanking him for his many years of volunteer service to the community.
