The holiday spirit is alive in Niagara Falls! Join us for our new Santa Claus Parade Drive Through! We are changing it up to keep you safe and bring joy and happiness to help kick off the holiday season!
The parade format is a "reverse parade" where performers will be stationary while spectators drive past in their vehicles. The Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade Drive Through is set for Saturday, November 14th between 3 and 5 p.m. on Queen Street in Downtown Niagara Falls. The parade will take place rain or shine.
The new Drive Through event will feature dancers, jugglers, stilt walkers, superheroes, colourful inflatables, community groups, music, and of course, good old Santa Claus as the Grand Finale!
Project SHARE will collect cash donations and non-perishable food items. Let your holiday spirit shine and join us for the new Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade Drive Through!
