It’s SNOW joke! The man in red is coming to town and will arrive by way of a parade in his honour. The 32nd annual Saskatoon Santa Claus parade is kicking off the Christmas season in downtown Saskatoon on Sunday, November 19. After the fun and festive parade, Santa will be landing in front of Midtown on his float. The streets will be full of happy families and little ones trying to get their first sighting of Santa!

Traditionally, the Santa Claus Parade marked the start of the Christmas shopping season. Each year, Midtown is a proud main sponsor along with many other YXE and area businesses and they work to make each year a success. Now, a holiday tradition in our community, Midtown is a proud sponsor of the Saskatoon Santa Claus Parade in support of the Ronald McDonald House. This will help RMHC-SK provide a safe space for families with sick children receiving medical treatment in Saskatchewan.

If you’d like to support the Santa Claus Parade and Ronald McDonald House, there are a lot of ways to get involved.

Enter a float: You still have time to enter a float for your business or group. You can find out more information here.

Volunteer: Because this is one of Saskatoon’s biggest holiday events, it wouldn’t happen without amazing volunteers. You can fill out a volunteer application form – and of course, make your way onto Santa’s “Good” List!

Come and Watch: Whether it’s a family tradition or it will be your first time, this will be the year to gather up your family and friends and cheer on the 32nd Annual Santa Claus Parade in support of Ronald McDonald House SK.

Get your wish lists ready because Santa Claus can’t wait for you to visit him in his festive NEW location. He will arrive right after the parade on Sunday, November 19 and stay until December 23! You can now find St. Nick on the main level of Midtown, right in front of The Bay. Visit the fabulous Midtown Shopping Center for all your shopping needs while your kids have a much-needed visit with Father Christmas. It’s time to get merry and bright and Shop Midtown!
