Following the parade, Santa will take part in the Springer Market Square tree lighting ceremony.

The City encourages spectators to bring non-perishable food items for the Food Bank as well as letters to Santa.

Kingston Transit will again avoid the risk of finding coal in their stockings this year by offering free rides on city buses for the parade on all routes . Plan your ride online with Kingston Transit’s Trip Planner.
