Santa is coming to Point Pelee National Park this Saturday.

Parade floats will be located throughout the park in the natural setting of Point Pelee, and spectators will view the floats from their vehicles’ comfort and warmth.

“We had to think in a different way this year,” says Chad Robinson, Christmas Parade Chair, “It was important to have the children see Santa Claus and the natural setting provided us with a spectacular opportunity.”

“The floats being community-based, brought excitement to the participants to put them together,” said Wendy Parsons, General Manager, Leamington District Chamber of Commerce, “with greater than 30 entries, the response has been larger than expected.”

The parade takes place from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

Spectators will be prohibited from lining up at the park gates until 5:30pm, but it is expected to have a steady flow through the 12 km route. “Patience and kindness” is the motto for this year’s parade.

Letters to Santa and bagged donations of toys and canned goods are being accepted near the route’s beginning.
