Celebrating is 26th Year the Etobioke Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade is 100% volunteer driven and we need your help to keep it going!

Each year a dedicated team of volunteers works hard to raise the funds needed to cover this years costs. Through donations and sponsorships from people like you is the only way to keep this tradition going.

If you love seeing the parade please donate 5.00 or what you can. Share your memories and photo's on our facebook page and or volunteer to be in the parade yourself.  

It is the 3rd largest Community Parade in Ontario and tens of thousands of children and families attend each year.  One of the best Christmas parades where you don't have to arrive hours early, everyone gets a great seat and the bands and floats are sure to please.

The money goes directly to things like sewing the costumes, repairing older floats and or adding new ones.
The parade comittee is made up of volunteers, many of whom have been volunteering for years, trying to keep the tradition alive.

Contact us for our Charity Number for larger donations.

Please share with friends, co-workers and family - donate what you can.  Each dollar is greatly appreciated and will Help Our Parade.

Thank you on behalf of the volunteer committee for the Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade
