Santa Claus Parade Milton

Who doesn’t love a great Christmas movie, whether it’s Elf, Miracle on 34th Street, Christmas Vacation, The Santa Clause, or Home Alone?

With a theme of Christmas in the Movies, those are some of the classic flicks participants in Milton’s parade will be drawing inspiration from this year.

The 2023 Milton Santa Claus Parade will take place Sunday, Nov. 26, starting at 1:30 p.m., with the route beginning at Main St. W. and Whitmer St. and ending at the Milton GO Station.

Santa Claus made his first appearance in Milton is a store display in 1907 but, according to local historian Jim Dills, did not make his first appearance at a parade until 1925 when he was spotted riding along Main Street on the radiator of a motorcar, which were still pretty rare in those days.

Milton Transit encourages parade watchers to help them with “Stuffing a Bus” full of non-perishable donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank.
