Santa Claus parades

HOLIDAY OUTINGS: Santa Claus parades

For younger kids, there's the built-up of anticipation to see Santa! For older kids, it's about the fun charaters interacting with the crowd. If the floats are ambitious, even better. Add hot chocolate to the mix and and you're good to go.

Nathalie's tips for a smooth outing

Official holidays are usually the busiest times of the year for an attraction. Try to arrive at opening time to beat the crowd, preferably before 11 a.m.
