One of Canada's Largest Community Parades

Etobicoke Lake Shore Santa Claus Parade

Now in it's 28th year, the Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade is enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year.  The best part (after seeing Santa of course), is the opportunity to skate with him!   The parade starts at 10am and runs along Lakeshore Blvd West between Dwight Street and 37th St. If viewing past Islington the start time is closer to 10:15 am. Or Kipling 10:30am


Come celebrate the joy of Christmas, the thrill of a Santa sighting and the history of the Etobicoke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade.
