GO to All the Toronto Area Parades

Do you love a parade as much as we do? The music, the costumes, the feeling of community spirit — there’s nothing like a parade to make you feel like celebrating! Parades are also one of the best free things to do in Toronto, and who doesn’t love free fun? Luckily, there are several parades throughout the year in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, so you never have to wait too long for more music, costumes, and fantastic floats!

Santa Claus Parades

SCP2023

Experience that special holiday magic that happens when Santa Claus comes to town! Nothing kicks off the holiday season like seeing Jolly Old Saint Nick, himself. A tradition for many families, watching a Santa Claus parade is a truly perfect way to get into the holiday spirit. Marching bands, winter-themed floats, and sleigh pulled by reindeer — it’s everything you could ask for in a holiday event. Bring the kids and watch their eyes sparkle with delight when they hear that famous “Ho! Ho! Ho!”. Santa makes the rounds to several cities in the GGH and whichever holiday parade you choose, GO can get you there!
