A BIG THANK YOU to All who participated in this year's Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade on Saturday, November 17, 2018.

Mark your calendar for next year's Parade - Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 11:00 am in Downtown (Queen Street) Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.


Santa Claus came to town! The Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade featured fabulous bands, colourful floats, mascots, entertainers, local schools, community groups, and our Grand Finale - Santa Claus! After the Parade, children were able to meet with Santa and Mrs. Claus at City Hall. The Parade kicked off, at 11:00 am sharp, from Victoria Avenue at Armoury Street, and travelled north along Victoria to Valley Way, then turned right (east) onto Queen Street, and ended just past City Hall at Queen and Erie.

Dedication - This year's parade was dedicated to a wonderful community volunteer - Mr. Don Johnson.  If you have been to the previous parades, then you will have seen Mr. Johnson playing his banjo or his glockenspiel.  He also performed at many park openings, seniors' homes, and other places.  He passed away earlier this year in September, and he will be missed by all.
