Santa Claus is coming to town on Sunday, Dec. 4, in downtown Burlington.

Returning to a full in-person event after a couple of pandemic years, the Santa Claus Parade will get underway at 2 p.m.

In addition to the floats and bands, there will be other community organization on hand taking donations to help out those in need this holiday season.

Non-perishable food donations for the Burlington Food Bank are being collected by the Burlington Teen Tour Boosters. Representatives of the Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Cub will also be collecting donations in support of the parade on behalf of the parade organizing committee.

And make sure your little ones bring their letters to Santa, which will be collected by letter carriers from Canada Post along the parade route.

Several road closures will be in effect because of the parade.

Prospect St., from Cumberland Ave. to Guelph Line, will be closed from from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with local access permitted.

  • Brant St. from Baldwin St./Victoria Ave. to Elgin St.

Halton police will supervise all closures and direct traffic at major intersections. Emergency services access will be maintained at all times along the event route.

Temporary “Emergency – No Stopping“ signs will be posted on various streets. Parking and police officers may ticket or tow illegally parked vehicles to ensure streets are free and clear for emergency vehicle access.
