Mark your calendar! The first Sunday in December is the official date of the Rogers Santa Claus Parade. Santa’s early visit to Vancouver on Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 is the perfect kick off to the holiday season!

PARADE ROUTE:
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, Rogers volunteers collect non-perishable food items and monetary donations on behalf of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.

Parade spectators are encouraged to arrive early for pre-parade fun. From 10:30am – 1:00pm they can visit the Coast Capital Savings Christmas Square in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Christmas Square includes the Food Bank drop-off zone, gingerbread decorating station, face painting, Letters to Santa station, balloon twisting, and an entertainment stage featuring several music and dancing performances. (10:30 am-1 pm)
