There are bleachers set up along Queen’s Park, we’ve had huge amounts of rainfall over the past few days, it’s mid-November, and nobody’s even slightly interested in Christmas yet – and you know what that means: it’s time for the annual Santa Claus Parade!
The parade runs tomorrow, beginning at 12:30 PM, travels from Bloor & Christie, east along Bloor to University, south to Queen, over to Yonge, then finishes at Front & Church (drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians take note: those streets will be shut down for most of the afternoon). This year’s parade has 1,500 participants, 25 floats, and 20 bands. In spite of the horrifying upside-down clowns, the overpriced cotton candy, and the extremely anti-climatic arrival of the man himself, the parade – whether you’re downtown or watching it at home on TV – is always still a lot of fun.
And hey, they’ve even got a websiteee…oh dear. Oh GOD. Never mind.
