It's the season of Santa

Ho Ho Ho it's time for the buildup to Christmas and what better way than watching a Santa Claus parade, man that guy is busy but he still takes time to visit with all the good little boys and girls. Toronto's Santa Claus Parade is on Sunday, November 18, 2018.
The 114th annual parade leaves Christie Pits at 12:30pm and takes 2.5 hours just to pass a single point - from the start of the parade to Santa's sleigh. The route follows along Bloor, University Avenue, Wellington, Yonge and Front Street before finally ending at the St. Lawrence Market. You can also follow the same route by joining the Holly Jolly Fun Run (The World's Most Festive 5K)

Here are the City of Toronto road closures for the festive events.
