The Newmarket Santa Claus parade happens just one day before the Toronto Santa Clause Parade, giving families in York Region an incredible alternative to avoid the hassle of the trek to downtown Toronto. Coming prepared makes all the difference so here are some tips on what to bring to ensure an enjoyable experience for all.
Setting up your spot early helps you have a nice view. You’re not going to be contesting with hoards of people as you would downtown, so just 10 minutes prior is plenty enough. Be sure you know where the bathrooms are, so you can head straight over when needed rather than looking for one during the parade and losing time away. Bring folding chairs, blankets and a box cooler; that’ll be great for storing snacks and sitting on. A thermos filled with hot chocolate is also a great treat to keep everyone warm and happy. Perhaps another thermos filled with soup if hunger sets in craving warm food. Despite the forecast, dress warmly. Bring extra hats, mitts, scarves and blankets as well as an umbrella just in case. Finally, don’t forget to bring your camera.
Begin a family tradition and be amazed by the sights and sounds of this joyous parade. For many kids, the magic of Christmas comes alive at the Santa Claus Parade and it’s sure to get you into the spirit. For a great family outing that they will remember for years to come, come check out the Newmarket Santa Claus Parade!
