Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - A List of Ottawa Area Parades 2015

We have an annual tradition.  Every year on the day of our local Santa Claus parade, the boys and I (and hubby if he is home) head to my brothers for breakfast in the morning, and then we bundle up and head outside to watch the parade.

We are so lucky that they actually live ON the parade route.  We just have to walk out to the end of the driveway.

November is here and the Santa parades will be happening soon, so I decided to put together a list of local ones that you might enjoy.

Kanata - November 14th, 10am
Ottawa - November 21, 11am
Barrhaven - November 22, 5:30pm
Stittsville - November 28th, 6 pm
Carleton Place - November 28th, 5pm
Orleans - November 28th, 6pm
Light Up The Night Almonte - December 4th, 7pm (not a parade, but an outdoor Christmas concert)
Osgood - December 5th (no time posted)
Perth- December 5th, 5pm

I have never been to a night time parade before; I think it would be really neat to see all the lights. Timing just hasn't worked out for us, but we do always make our local parade where Santa is brought in on a fire truck!

Do you attend a Santa Claus parade in your area? If you do, remember that most of them collect non-perishables for the local food bank - so try and have a donation with you to contribute!

If you are looking to find out the Mall Santa hours at the local malls, my friend Stacey at Not Just Baby Brain has rounded them up!


  1. I am pretty sure my sister in law knows about these (she lives in Ottawa) but i will make sure to send them her way just in case :)

  2. Just moved to a new province and I'm thinking of attending the parade in my area; it's an evening parade so I'm guessing there will be a lot of lights!

  3. Lots of Santa parades in the Ottawa area, that's lovely there'll always be one that fits into your time-plan that you can attend. Kids will have a great time :-)

  4. Great list! I think ours is happening here in Victoria next week! We can't wait to go with our grandchildren!

  5. I love the Santa Claus Parade , i live in Nova Scotia , i bet these are amazing Parades , ours is a small one , but the kids love it , thanks for sharing :) Treen Goodwin rafflecopter name :)
