Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade
November 17, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Bring a Loonie!
This year, we are asking all parade spectators to bring a loonie to help support local charities including, but not limited to:
The Barrhaven Food Cupboard, The Tourette’s Foundation – Ottawa Chapter, Fruit and Breakfast program at our local schools.
100% of money raised will be going back into our community!
For over 20 years now, the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade has lit its way down Strandherd Drive in Barrhaven. As always, we work to make the Barrhaven Santa Claus Parade bigger, bolder and brighter every year!
With funding from local sponsors, the parade has continued to grow in popularity and size, adding new and better floats with each year. Today this volunteer-run parade sees entries including elaborate floats, marching bands, entertainers and costumed characters, all lit up to the delight of our 40,000 spectators. The afternoon of the parade, participants will form up on Beatrice Drive and move along to Strandherd Drive at 5:30 pm to entertain young and old alike! Local businesses will treat spectators with complimentary hot drinks along the parade route at designated areas. The parade ends with Santa himself, of course, and will finish at the Park’n’Ride where it turns north for dispersal.
This is a well-loved community event that delights so many residents of our community and those from neighbouring areas. We are proud to present this wonder-filled event!
