Old firetruck decorated for the Mount Albert parade
Santa Claus came to town last Saturday but walking or riding on floats ahead of him were community groups such as Scouts, local businesses, Crime Stoppers, children's after school programs....all decked out as angels, shepherds, sheep, elves and festive whatevers.
The parade was short in length - by Toronto standards - but long in spirit, waves and smiles.
Mt. Albert Fire Department
This old firetruck is now owned by a local businessman who's a kid at heart. When this fire truck was in service, Mount Albert had it's own fire department. Now Mount Albert is one of the communities that makes up the Town of East Gwillimbury.
In celebration of the old and wonderful "stuff", I am connecting to Rubbish Tuesday HERE.

The old fire truck is beautiful! I enjoyed seeing several at a parade this summer. Around here I don't think there are any parades in the winter; I guess we're not as tough as Canadians in some respects!
Wonderful fire truck, glad someone "saved" it. Looks like they were having a good time.
Oh I love this - I have a real thing for vintage style vehicles and I love the festive colours. Thank you for the lovely comments on my blog too! - Tasha xxx
Wow! What a relic.
What a marvelous truck! I think the stuffed doggie on top is just the icing on the cake in terms of decoration.
A great way to celebrate. The fire truck is a beauty.
Great to see. looks like the trucks they had when my dad joined the local fire fighters.
I love the truck, all those smiling faces and the cute animals on the top v
I like the wreaths in the hubcaps. What a smart and well-rounded idea. :)
I like its red colour.
at first i thought the dog in front was real! :)
Love that old firetruck! Great photos!
P.S. It looks like comment word verification got turned on for your blog. Seems to be a problem with lots of blogs today - thought you would like to know.
I'm glad this old fire truck is still in service for parades and celebrations. It looks as if everyone is having a great time.
Nothing like a parade to get the spirit started!!
Oh, I'm glad the fire truck was saved!! How fun! A great holiday post, EG! Love it, as always! Hope your week is off to a great start!!
I like how the Christmas spirit is slowly driving in. :)
This is my very favorite kind of parade!
That truck is so sweet. Love all the little kids with their happy faces!
Those small parades are special because they are local and everyone knows each other.
These are wonderful pictures! I love the wreaths around the wheel covers and the candy canes on the sides. It rained really hard on our parade, but they carried on. I did not go because of the rain.
wow, that looks fun. I want to by a kid again.
A short parade this time of year up there seems like the best way to go. Looks like everybody was having a great time though.
That's a pretty cool Fire Truck - and fun was had by all! :)
I like this cool fire truck! Great parade shots. Have a happy new week!
Looks like a fun experience!
A great restoration, and I love the wreath wheels!
That's a nice old firetruck and a nice addition to the parade.
Well kept fire engine!
A great fire truck, full of christmas spirit.
Nothing like a dear small town parade with an old firetruck!

Great truck, every guy loves fire trucks. Your link from Rubbish Tuesday needs to be fixed. Tom The Backroad Traveller
Small town ones are the best.
How fun this is just a perfect holiday parade, and cool fire truck! Wreaths on the wheels, what a wonderful idea!
Our Santa paradev was Satudrdray too. I am a kea (5 to 7 year olds) scout leader and my eldest son is a scout leader as I watched our parade I did think it would have been neat too have our scouts involved. There hasnt been a parade here for several years and not much notice this year - maybe next year :)
I really like the firetruck :)
