Santa Under the Stars Parade

Don’t miss the magic of the Santa Under the Stars Parade. This annual night time tradition continues on Saturday, November 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The parade will travel along Yonge Street from Orchard Heights Boulevard to Murray Drive.

The Salvation Army will be picking up food donations and letters for Santa along the route before the parade begins.

This night time parade is full of magic, with beautifully decorated floats, incredible marching bands and a few special guests include the Jolly man-in-red himself.

Note: Please enjoy the parade, however it is essential that you enjoy it from the sidewalk. Do not sit or stand on the road. It is essential from the curb into the road be completely clear at all times, as EMS vehicles need to use this space to respond to emergencies.
