Come out and get into the Christmas Spirit with a drive thru Santa Claus Parade brought to you by the Innisfil Community Events Corporation (ICECorp).
The parade will showcase some of our local businesses and of course, the big man himself, Santa Claus who will wave to your family from the safety of your vehicle.
Please note due to capacity issues this event is for INNISFIL RESIDENTS ONLY and will require proof of residency through the displaying of the Green Innisfil 2020 Parking Pass on the front dash. (Parking Passes are available at Town Hall)
Please also note for the safety of our volunteers please DO NOT EXIT your vehicle for any reason. Washrooms are not available on site and average wait times may be between 30 minute and one hour long. No walk ins are allowed for this event.

We thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, float participants, Town and Health Unit staff for their continued support and effort in putting our event on this year. It has been an especially trying year and we thank them for their efforts to share some Christmas spirit this year.
