Mark your calendar! The first Sunday in December is the official date of the 10th annual Rogers Santa Claus Parade. Santa’s early visit to Vancouver on Sunday, December 1ST, 2013 is the perfect kick off to the holiday season!
The parade will start at West Georgia Street and Broughton (at 1:00 pm), travel east along West Georgia, turn south on Howe and finish at Howe and Davie.
This year’s Rogers Santa Claus Parade will feature marching bands, dance troupes, festive floats and community groups, which entertain over 300,000 spectators. Produced by Rogers Communications Inc., the televised Parade is the Lower Mainland’s biggest winter event!
A very special part of the Rogers Santa Claus Parade is celebrating the
“Spirit of Giving.” Each year, on parade day, volunteers collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations on behalf of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Please bring $1 to donate!
