After being forced to quarantine last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Santa Claus is officially coming back to the Town of Milton next month.
The Milton Santa Claus Parade dates back to 1933 and has continued its tradition with the help of volunteers and community groups. In the past, the event has attracted over 30,000 people.
This year’s parade will take place on Sunday, Nov. 21 and will begin at 1:30 p.m. from Main Street West and Whitmer. The theme will be a tribute to the town’s “everyday heroes.”
“The 2021 Milton Santa Claus parade theme is a salute to the generosity and courage of the everyday heroes of this pandemic – from healthcare workers on the front lines, to all the essential workers and to those of us doing our part to stop the spread of the virus by staying home,” states the parade’s website.
“We are optimistic that things will get better and this is a chance for us to celebrate after all the sacrifices we made over the last 18 months.”
The parade’s committee is made up of volunteers with funding coming strictly from the support of the Business Community. As a result, it is seeking sponsorships for this year’s event.
