ONTARIO – The candy canes will be flying and the marching bands playing Christmas tunes as Ontario’s Winter Wonderland Parade takes to the streets on Saturday.

This year’s parade theme is Jack Frost with a first-ever presenting sponsor, the Malheur Enterprise.

The parade follows the same route as in years past and begins at 1 p.m. The parade will line up on Alameda Drive before taking to Southwest Fourth Avenue and making the long trip before the crowd assembled. The parade will then make the turn on Oregon Street and end at the Ontario train depot. Currently, more than 50 entries are scheduled to participate including car groups, floats from different organizations, horse groups and marching bands.

Those streets will be closed for approximately one hour due to the parade and . . .
