2015 Parade Theme

The theme for the 2015 Oakville Santa Claus Parade was selected at the Awards Banquet held on December 2.

With the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, and with the 2015 the Year of Sport in Canada, and because Christmas involves the hustle and bustle, with singing, dancing and visiting friends and family, and Grinches that ride Mount Crumpet, and Santa flying through the sky....2015 Oakville Santa Claus Parade is CHRISTMAS in MOTION. 

Thank you Oakville for all your suggestions and see you next year!

Oakville Santa Claus Parade Supports Attentive Driving Habits

The Ministry of Transportation and CAA support evidence that distracting driving is on the rise.  The Oakville Santa Claus Parade kindly requests that if you are driving a motorized vehicle in the parade, that you turn off your device for the duration of the parade.  With walkers, vehicles, animals, and parade viewers, sharing the Lakeshore/Kerr parade route, it is critical drivers remain focused at all times.  Thank you!
