No Santa Claus Parade in Brampton again this year
Published October 21, 2021 at 9:34 am
For the second consecutive year, the Brampton Santa Claus Parade will not be happening due to COVID-19.
This year, as was the case last year, there will be no parade. Instead, organizers will be broadcasting a Christmas presentation on November 27, that residents will be able to watch for free from their homes.
First established in 1994, the parade has become the largest single-day event in Peel Region, as well as the largest nighttime parade in the country.
However, while this year’s event won’t be quite the same, it will still include some of the things that have made it such a popular event in recent years, including floats, Christmas music, dance performances, and more.
Additionally, according to Barbara Schembri, president of the Brampton Santa Claus Parade Committee, it will also include an appearance from the “jolly man in red.”
“The special broadcast will be aired on our YouTube channel which is available through our website and on our Social Media links,” Schembri said. “Santa assures us he is coming to Brampton, and we will welcome him during the broadcast!”
The hope is, as more vaccines are administered, and coverage continues to rise, the parade can return in its full form next year.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
