The Santa Claus Parade Through The Years

November 12th, 2014

This weekend marks the official beginning of the holiday season, and that’s because of the 110th Annual Toronto Santa Claus Parade! We love the holiday season – the festive cheer everywhere, the holiday windows at Holt’s, the peppermint in everything from lotions to our drinks, and everything that comes along with the most wonderful time of the year.

This year’s Santa Claus Parade is on Sunday, November 16th and Santa is expected to arrive at 12:30 PM. The parade will then start from Christie Pits, head down Bloor, go past The ROM, turn onto Avenue, past the Eaton Centre, swing left onto Wellington and end at the St. Lawrence Market.

But for now, let’s go on a walk down memory lane and take a look at Toronto Santa Claus Parades over the years:1918 SANTA CLAUS PARADE1918









And for the real history buffs, take a look at this timeline, which tells you the story of when Santa used reindeer imported from Labrador to lead his sleigh back in 1913 and other fun facts.

Have fun this Sunday! Dress warm!
