What makes the parade so special?
Other than the chance to see Santa, the parade holds historic significance for the city of Toronto. Initially started in 1905, The Santa Claus Parade has become a local tradition that is celebrated and enjoyed by Canadians all across the nation and worldwide. It is broadcasted across North America, and is also enjoyed by viewers as far as New Zealand, Norway and Iceland. The Toronto Santa Claus parade is considered the longest running children’s parade in the world and holds great significance in initiating the festive season.
Don’t forget to wear a red nose!
In order to show support for the parade and provide support to the 180 Mosquito Air Cadets, attendees are encouraged to wear a red nose. You can purchase one for $2 or three for $5, and all proceeds will go to the parade organization and the cadets. To find out more information, click here.
