Don’t miss the magic of the Santa Under the Stars Parade.

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

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.

Huge thanks goes to the exceptional marshalling job done by the Optimist Club of Aurora, the crowd control done by the Don Valley REACT and the great traffic control assistance from the Safeguard, York Region Police and Auxiliary Units. 

A big thank you to all those who donated time, equipment, services and good will to the 2019 Aurora's Santa Under the Stars:
