“Fish Tales is very much a part of the Richmond Hill community, and we want to celebrate this special anniversary of the boat parade,” restaurant manager Zach Broome said. “We selected Lesley Francis and her team because they are part of this community and have an excellent track record in generating awareness.”

Fish Tales invites the community to join in the boat parade or just watch from 4:30-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Photos with Santa, live music, awards, prizes and a fireworks show will take place.
