62nd Annual Santa Claus Parade



The Parade Route will be the same route as last year.  The parade will leave the Causeway, go onto Union St., left on Sydney St., right on King’s Square North, left on Charlotte St., down King St. and on to St. Patrick, on to Main St., right on Lansdowne Ave., and right at Wellesley Blvd.  These streets will be closed off during the parade.
  • The Causeway (all 4 lanes) will be blocked off beginning at 3:30pm on Saturday for parade line-up.
  • Citizens are asked to not park on King Street beginning at 5 pm.
  • Any vehicles parked anywhere along the parade route after 5:30 p.m. will be towed.
  • Please be aware of and obey all signage along the parade route.

Please bring grocery bags with non-perishable food items to the Saint John Santa Claus Parade!  City workers will be gathering the groceries along the parade route just before the parade begins.  The food will be delivered to the Community Food Bank.
Bring your gently used coats to the parade and support the Coats for Kids Campaign.  NBCC students and staff will be picking up gently used coats along the parade route just before the parade starts.

Books will be collected for our community schools by the UNBSJ SRC.
Children with letters to Santa Claus – the letters will be picked up along the parade route just before Santa Claus.  Be sure to include your return mailing address!

Honorary Parade Marshalls this year are Chuck and Anne Hickey. Watch for them in the vintage fire truck!

This year's parade is sponsored by Ready Rentals.
