Kin Club Santa Claus Parade

November 17, 2018, 4:30pm - 6:00pm | Community

Get ready Orangeville! Santa Claus will be coming to town this year on Saturday, November 17, 2018, and to welcome him, the Kin Club of Orangeville has decided to play some Musical Magic for him! Participants in the parade are encouraged to decorate and use anything in a musical theme this year!

The parade will start just a little bit earlier as well this year, so those who prefer more of a daytime parade can position themselves near the start of the parade route, and those who prefer an evening parade can position themselves in the middle of the route or near the end of the route.

The parade will begin at 4:30 p.m., and start at Hansen Blvd. and First St, then travel south on First St., along Broadway and end at Rotary Park.

The Kin Club will be taking parade registrations beginning September 1 until November 15. To register to participate in this year's parade, please contact this year’s Parade Chair, Cindy Williams at [email protected] or at 519-939-6224.
