Experience the magic of the Santa Under the Stars Parade


Santa arrives in Aurora on Saturday, November 24

Enjoy the lights, festive music and magic of the season as Santa Claus makes his annual visit to Aurora’s Santa Under the Stars Parade on Saturday, November 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

The evening parade will run south on Yonge Street from Orchard Heights Boulevard to Murray Drive.

Grab a bite to eat or a warm drink from the variety of local restaurants on Yonge Street, then find your perfect spot along the 2.4 kilometre route and wait for a chance to see beautifully decorated floats, incredible marching bands and Santa Claus.

During the holiday season, please consider the less fortunate in our community. The Salvation Army will be collecting non-perishable food items along the parade route.

Have you mailed your letter to Santa yet? Letters will also be collected, so start writing your note today. 

Take pictures as you enjoy this magical evening with your friends and family and remember to share your pictures with us on social media using #AuroraSantaParade.

After the parade, many stores will stay open, so start your holiday shopping and shop locally.

Thank you to our generous contributions from our valued sponsors: Aurora Home Hardware, Royal LePage Your Community Realty and TD Bank.
