After a Candy Drop farewell tour over Nunavik communities this past Spring, the famed Inuit bush pilot Johnny May (now 71) will be waving goodbye to this extraordinary tradition with one last Christmas Candy Drop over Kuujjuaq on December 25. Initiated in 1965 by Johnny May himself, Kuujjuaq residents have been enjoying the event each Christmas for over 50 years. Watch for this legendary aviator in his Turbo Otter, along with Santa and his helpers onboard, to drop candies and a medley of gifts that will have everyone looking to the sky above, running and scrambling in the snow to catch their share.
