Grimsby Santa Claus Parade

The 62nd Annual Grimsby Santa Claus Parade was held on Saturday, December 7th with this year’s theme being Hometown Christmas.  The streets were lined with happy families and friends enjoying all the amazing floats, marching bands and the grand finale – Santa.

The Grimsby Santa Claus Parade is one of the longest-running events in Grimsby. The parade was once a morning event, but in the year 2000, the parade was moved to an evening event to celebrate the millennium. It was such a success that it has remained an evening event ever since. Each year the parade consists of approximately 90 entries which include community floats, walking groups, marching bands, and various entertainment.
