2016 Santa Claus Parades in Canada

Each year there is a debate about how soon is too soon to celebrate Christmas, but it is hard to argue once  the Santa Claus parade begins!

Wikipedia says “The Christmas parade is a direct descendant of late Medieval and Renaissance revivals of Roman Triumphs“, but over the past few centuries the Santa Claus parade has become a wonderful annual tradition for young and old. We line the streets in small towns and big cities to collect candy, wave at festive characters on themed floats, and catch a glimpse of the big man!

Santa Claus is coming to (your) town! We have compiled a list of 2016 Santa Claus parades across Canada so you can mark your calendars! Don’t see your local parade listed? Give us a shout at @retrofestive and we’ll add it!
