Details released about this year's Toronto Santa Claus Parade (MAP)

Oct 25 2019, 8:01 am

All eyes will turn to Toronto streets on November 17, as the 115th annual Santa Claus Parade will be descending on the city.

The annual pageant of giant balloons, floats, mascots, clowns, marching bands, and beloved holiday characters is one of the best Toronto events in November.

You can look forward to 34 floats, 20 marching bands, and festive characters during the parade, which kicks off at 12:30 pm.

Just remember, if you’re planning on getting a clear view of the big man in red, you’re going to want to head down early to get a good spot.

This year, the parade will follow a new route, and will instead start at Parliament and Bloor before making its way over to the St. Lawrence Market through Bloor, University, and Wellington streets.

Not sure where to go to see the parade? Here’s the official parade map to help you plan.
