Ontario Power Generation presents the 2022 Welland Santa Claus Parade and Tree Lighting

Join in the fun as Welland welcomes Santa Claus

Welland’s annual Santa Claus Parade begins at 4 p.m. at Canadian Tire Financial Services, travelling west towards Civic Square.

Once he arrives at Civic Square, join Santa and help him light Welland’s Christmas Tree. Take a festive photo in the Betty Loo Photobooth and design a spectacular holiday craft with the Niagara Art Gallery. Bridge 13 will be lit in red and greet on parade night.

Elsa, The Grinch, and Belle & Beast will be there to join the fun.

Mail your letters to Santa at our dedicated mailbox at Civic Square — don’t forget your return address.

Enjoy Sing Niagara — a women’s a cappella chorus — welcome the festive season with a variety of holiday favourites.

Help decorate the 2022 Mitten Tree at Civic Square. (Donations can include mittens, hats, scarves, slippers, children’s toys, and non-perishable food items.)
