Santa Claus Parade
When: Dec 01, 2019 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm


It is with great disappointment that the Santa Claus Parade is cancelled due to the declaration of a weather event and unsafe weather conditions. Public safety is our #1 priority. Unfortunately the parade cannot be rescheduled due to the massive amount of scheduling to coordinate 90 floats and road closures. We encourage all residents to please avoid any unnecessary travel until weather conditions improve.


Santa Claus is coming to town Sunday, December 1st!

Burlington’s annual Santa Claus Parade will feature bands, colourful floats, mascots, and jolly old Saint Nick himself!

Full parade & float details can be found at: burlington.ca/parade.
