Santa Claus Parade returns to Downtown Vancouver to put you in the holiday spirit

The annual Vancouver Santa Claus Parade returns to the city for another year of festive fun.

The parade begins at West Georgia and Broughton, and then it travels east along West Georgia. It turns south on Howe, and then finishes at Howe and Davie.

The parade will include marching bands, dance troupes, festive floats and community groups, entertaining more than 300,000 spectators.

While the parade is free to watch, businesses and individuals may purchase seats in the VIP bleacher sections. These hosted seats provide guests with snacks and beverages, as well as a fantastic vantage point to soak in the parade.

Once the parade is finished, guests may enjoy the TELUS Photos with Santa at TELUS Garden from 2 to 4 p.m., and it’s free. 

Guests can also start the day with a scrumptious breakfast with Santa at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. The buffet includes a pancake and waffle station, a hot chocolate station and a decorate-your-own gingerbread cookie station.

Prior to the parade there’s a variety of pre-parade festivities in the Christmas Square, a.k.a. Vancouver Art Gallery North Plaza, from 10 a.m. until noon.
