Guide to Visiting the Toronto Santa Claus Parade | Pictures of the Toronto Santa Claus Parade | Toronto Travel Guide

The Toronto Santa Claus Parade is the country's biggest parade, not to mention one of the world's longest running children's parades and draws half a million people to the city's sidewalks. 

If you care to extend your stay beyond the two hours of the parade and stay in Toronto overnight, consider staying at one of the hotels along the parade route.


Unlike New York City's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, for example, few hotels in Toronto actually offer rooms from which guests can easily view the Santa Claus Parade; however, many hotels have special rates on the Saturday night before Sunday's parade with late check-out times available after the parade.

Even if you don't have a room with a view, which are of course especially marked up in price, hotels near the parade route offer the convenience of having a warm room - and toilet - close by.

You'll want to get started early on parade day. Though the start time isn't till 12:30 pm, people start staking out spots as early as 9 and 10 am.
