November 10th, 2022



 The Santa Claus parade is returning to beautiful downtown Burlington Dec. 4, from 2-4 p.m.

The parade will feature floats, community groups, costumed characters, the Burlington Teen Tour Band, Junior Redcoats and other marching bands. As always, Santa will be the grand finale of the parade.

People can once again line New Street to enjoy a Seasonal event.


The parade will start at 2 p.m. at the corner of Guelph Line and Prospect Street and makes its way downtown along New Street. The parade then travels north on Brant Street and finishes at Caroline Street.

Roads of the parade route will be closed Dec. 4, at 1 p.m. and will re-open shortly after the final float has moved through and a clean-up has been completed.

For the past two years Santa got driven around in an antique Fire Truck

Children are encouraged to bring letters for Santa, which will be collected by letter carriers from Canada Post along the parade route. Spectators may bring non-perishable food donations, which will be accepted by the Burlington Teen Tour Band boosters for local food banks.

The Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Club will be collecting donations of loonies, toonies and $2 tap to help support the operation costs of the parade.

Any individuals or groups also interested in volunteering with the parade can email, call 905-335-7777, ext.7978 or visit
