Nighttime Santa Parade

Santa Claus is coming to town for the 16th annual Nighttime Santa Parade on Saturday, November 16th!  The parade will leave from Innovation Park at 5:00pm (Bath Road & Princess Street) and travel down Princess to Ontario Street.

Spectators are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Food Bank as well as letters to Santa!

We have partnered with Rotary Clubs of Kingston and Easter Seals Ontario, Southeastern Ontario to offer viewing accommodations for families with accessibility needs. More information coming soon!

The big guy himself will be on hand after the parade in Springer Market Square for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Come help us officially kick off the holiday season!

Kingston Transit is guaranteed to be on Santa’s good list again this year – rides on city buses on all routes will be free all day! All Express Routes will run a 15-minute service, rather than regular Saturday 30-minute service, from 3:00pm – 8:30pm. Plan your ride at
