Weston Santa Claus Parade

 —  —

Weston Road, Along Weston Rd from Church Street south to Sidney Belsey Crescent, Toronto, Toronto

Join for 41st Weston Santa Claus Parade. The theme this year is a Fairy Tale Christmas. The parade features 10 of Ontario’s top marching bands, 20 beautifully decorated, community floats and of course, Santa and his elves. The Burlington Teen Tour Band with its 120 member ensemble is back this year. They are consistently rated as the top parade band in Canada and will once again lead Santa into the parade.

This year, the parade will have a very artistic flair with groups like Shakespeare in Action acting out their version of a Christmas Carol accompanied by Weston’s own and highly acclaimed Weston Silver Band.
