BELLEVILLE SANTA CLUS DISPLAY

It was a chilly wet day when the Belleville and District Shrine Club Nobles of John Neil, Barrie Willis, Doug MacLauren, Jim Preston, Ken Campbell, Calvin Thomas, Bill Richardson, Leonard Bedford and Clarence Stevenson set up at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre on Sunday, 22 November 2020, for the first ever Belleville Santa Claus Display. Photographer Noble Stephen D. Shirk was on site to do his normal thing taking these pics of history.Due to COVID-19 the Belleville Chamber of Commerce decided that it was best to avoid large crowds standing on the side of the roadways to view the Santa Claus Parade floats as they passed in procession. This year they reversed this idea by having the people of Belleville stay safe in their vehicles to drive by the many floats on display.
