This years Christmas Candy drop will forever stay in our hearts, as Kuujjuamiut took part in possibly Kuujjuaq's last Candy Drop. A beautiful tradition initiated by our very own Johnny May, memorializing the first ever candy drop performed by Johnny's father Bob May Sr. and Armand Gadbois as Santa in a small Piper PA-12 over 50 years ago. The tradition has truly become a legend and will surely be missed by all who have always looked forward to this extraordinary and and special event each Christmas.
