THE Parade is coming to town this next weekend. Â Yes, the Santa Claus Parade through Toronto’sÂ downtown streets.Â It starts Sunday November 14th at 12:30PM up at Christie and Bloor . Mind – there are some changes to the route. The swing down University now swerves East at Dundas and proceeds to Yonge where it goes down to Front as usual. See the new route map here.
There is a pre-Parade Free Breakfast at Yonge Dundas Square where MacDonalds and Presidents Choice are treating from 9:00AM to 11:00AM. The parade will come by about 1:00PM.

First there are lots of colorful floats and some great kids excitement to be found.Â My favorite is the marching bands and the all the cheerleaders and flagbearers creating great fun
Of course there are clowns and color blooms to add to the festivities:
But here is a hint forÂ people spotters – catch the start and end of the parade and the kids drawing with free chalk in the road waiting for the parade and Santa’s arrival – great photo stuffings to be found at these spots and times.
