Thorold Santa Claus Parade

The Thorold Santa Claus Parade has been an annual tradition in the City of Thorold for 30 years. Each year, residents and guests are invited to Thorold's Downtown to experience a festive array of community floats, marchers, entertainers and bands. The parade takes place on the last Saturday of each November.

This year will mark the 30th Anniversary of the parade in the City of Thorold. To honour this legacy, staff and volunteers are working together to incorporate some special elements and activities for this special occasion.

 A Message from the Mayor
“This year, we recognize how truly significant the parade is for our Community. Not only does it mark the return of an in-person event, but it also kick-starts the Holiday Season,” said Mayor Terry Ugulini. “For 29 years, the parade has been run by dedicated volunteers who have been committed to providing City of Thorold residents with a fun and meaningful holiday celebration. We are excited to bring that vision back to life for the 30th Anniversary of the parade this year.”
