The Etobicoke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade is run entirely by community volunteers and since 2009 has been Chaired by Carlos Guerreiro.
The community volunteers are comprised of longstanding participants and each year we attract new volunteers which reflect the changing demographics of the area.
The committee is a small core group, but tremendously dedicated volunteers who donate many hours each year to put this parade together.
All of their hard work has resulted in the Etobicoke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade ranked as the 3rd largest Christmas parade in Ontario with a reported attendance of 50,000+ 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 neighborhood.
