2012 Kitchener Waterloo Santa Claus Parade

Kitchener Waterloo Santa Claus ParadeFor nearly 50 years the Kitchener Waterloo Santa Claus Parade has been bringing joy to the children young and old in Waterloo Region.

With more than 14 bands, including the award winning Burlington Teen Touring Band and the Dutch Boy Drum and Bugle Corps and about one hundred other participants from businesses, schools and local organizations who provide floats, vehicles and horses the parade is a perennial favourite.

The Lions Club of Kitchener with several major sponsors (Rogers TV and Conestoga Mall) and many other groups are to thank for this free public kick off to the Christmas season.

Participants in the parade besides Santa himself and the Parade Grand Marshall, have included Miss Oktoberfest, Onkle Hans, the K-W Citizen of the Year, Mayors of the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo, The Region Chair of Waterloo, Local Fire Departments and various service clubs or community organizations.

Canada Post picks up mail for the “jolly old man” from the children for delivery at: Santa Claus, North Pole, Ho Ho Ho. The Waterloo Knights of Columbus are involved in the toy drive with the Waterloo F.D. and food items are collected for the local Food Bank.

This one and a half hour parade, which brings much excitement and joy to not only the young but the adults, has grown in the number of participants and those who straddle King Street to watch the event.

For those who do not have the opportunity to attend the parade, Rogers TV broadcasts live from Kitchener City Hall that special Saturday morning at 11:00.
