Santa is coming to town, but you can only see him on your TV screen.

The 116. Annual Santa Clause Parade is held this weekend and due to the pandemic there will be no crowds or marching through the streets.

The parade will take place on a closed track in the Canadian Wonderland and will take the form of a two-hour TV special that will air on Saturday evening.

Our Geoff Rohoman spoke to Santa Claus himself and the big man says it will still feel like the old parade, just without the crowd.

« All the cars are there, woman of course. Claus’ swimmers, Santa’s swimmers, marching bands, ”said Santa Claus. « When you look at it I think the phrase is you will wow! »

This is the first time the parade has taken place in the evening. It will include 25 floats, eight marching bands and guest appearances by Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson.

The annual event used to take place on the streets of the city center. There were large crowds on the parade route. Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the organizers had to move this year’s event to the amusement park in Vaughan.

Mayor John Tory hopes the parade and Christmas decorations around City Hall can help keep the holiday spirit alive.

« At least we can have the parade on TV, we can light the square and the lights on the tree in Nathan Phillips Square, » says Tory. “As long as people stay at a distance in small groups with their own families, we can make the best of a difficult situation. ”

If you can’t take part in the parade this weekend, an encore presentation will be broadcast on Saturday afternoon.
