There will be plenty of festive cheer in the city center on Saturday night as London’s Santa Claus Parade returns for its 66th edition.
This year’s theme is A Musical Christmas and the party starts at 6 p.m. from Dundas and Egerton Streets.
Organizer Shaun Merton says there are more than 50 different entries in this year’s parade.
“There will be a lot of music, a lot of bands… it will be good,” he told 980 CFPL.
Merton also says it has been difficult to secure sponsors this year, but thanks to Southside Group, Adventures on Wonderland and London Lightning, the parade is ready to go.
The parade will march west on Dundas Street until it reaches Ridout Street.
If you can’t be there in person, tune in to the live stream hosted by Jess Brady from 980 CFPL starting at 6:45 p.m.
