Route Change for 2022!
Due to construction in downtown Brampton, the Parade organizing committee is pleased to present an alternate route and asks that spectators familiarize themselves with the route changes. The new route will start at Bramalea Road and Central Park Drive, heading northbound on Bramalea Road, turning right, and heading eastbound on North Park Drive and ending at Jordan Boulevard.
This year, spectators are asked to please bring a non-perishable food donation for the Parade food drive. Keep a look out for the REgeneration Brampton volunteers and their grocery carts collecting food and cash donations during the Parade. This year the need is greater than ever, and your help is very much appreciated.
During the Parade, Santa will have his DHL Global elves collecting letters to Santa from all the kids. Of course, kids can also mail their letters to: Santa Claus, North Pole, HOH OHO.
Large crowds are expected to attend this year, however the Parade will also be broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook, with award winning Host, Michael A. Charbon and Parade committee member, Anita Anonthysene.
