Be ready for construction around Brampton’s Miracle on Main Street

Published November 18, 2022 at 10:41 am

The Miracle on Main fundraising drive raised more than $850,000 for people in need in Halton.

Ongoing construction in downtown Brampton won’t stop the Miracle on Main Street from returning this year, but guests should be prepared for some road congestion before heading out to the big event.

The annual charity drive, known for getting the community into the holiday spirit for a good cause, is back this year and will take place today (Nov. 18) at Gage Park, located at 45 Main St. South from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

The event is set to feature amusement rides, a petting zoo, pony rides, stage performances, food, drinks and more.

But with road and watermain repairs currently going on in the city’s downtown, getting to the Miracle could be a bit tricky.

Crews are working on Main St. between Nelson St. East and Wellington St., as well as along Queen St. between Mill St. South and Chapel St. The construction has reduced traffic to a single lane in each direction on Queen St., and Main Street has one lane open in one direction only.

On-street parking is not available, but there are five parking garages available: Nelson Square, Market Square, West Tower, City Hall and John Street Garage.

Admission to the event will be free with a donation of a new unwrapped toy for the annual charity toy drive hosted by the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation (TJSF). The organization will also be accepting online donations until Dec. 21, 2022, with 100 per cent of them going into supporting the Brampton community.

The Brampton Santa Claus Parade is rolling out on Saturday, and also has a new route this year due to the downtown construction.

The parade will now begin at the intersection of Bramalea Rd. and Central Park Dr. and will head north on Bramalea Rd. towards North Park Dr.

It will then head east on North Park Dr. and conclude at the intersection of North Park Dr. and Jordan Blvd.
