Niagara Falls Santa Claus Parade (Niagara Falls)


A different way to see Niagara Falls

2016: Saturday November 19 at 11 a.m.

This parade has a small town feel to it. It is a great excuse to come and see what the falls look like at this time of the year. (The outdoor attraction Journey Behind the Fall is open year-round, a cool... and cold way to experience the falls!)

The Parade starts at Victoria Avenue and Armoury Street, and goes north along Victoria Avenue to Valley Way. Then it turns east (right) on Valley Way, and east again (right) on Queen Street. It ends at Niagara Falls City Hall on 4310 Queen Street (a 1.2 km route). I recommand you find a viewing spot along Queen Street, the pretiier part of the route.

Since the parade is at 11 a.m., it allows plenty of time to enjoy the destination's favourite indoor attractions such as Ripley's Believe it or not! Museum and Bird Kingdom. The popular Clifton Hill, where all the commercial attractions of Niagara Falls can be found, is 2-km from the finish line of the parade. While you're there, you might as well stay until it gets dark to admire the Niagara Winter Festival of Lights.
