The Etobicoke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade is run entirely by community volunteers, comprised of both longstanding members, and new representation every year.
The Committee is a small core group of tremendously dedicated volunteers who donate their time every year to put this parade together.
All of their hard work has resulted in the 3rd largest Christmas parade in Canada (and the 2nd longest parade in the GTA) with a reported attendance of 60,000+ people annually.
The parade fulfills an important role in the community as businesses, organizations, industry and residents come together to present the best of the community and put forth the best parade possible for the neighbourhood.
