Get in Christmas mode people, because even though it may only be November, the Xmas festivities are already set to begin. Starbucks cups have already gone red, and more importantly, the 64th edition of the downtown Montreal Santa Clause Parade is all set to make the city brim with holiday glee at the tail end of the month.
Santa will take to the streets of Montreal on Saturday, November 22nd, with the parade beginning at 11am. Starting at du Fort, the parade will run along St. Catherine street 'til St. Urbain (map) with twenty floats, singers, dancers, and street performers comprising the street-side spectacle.
One new float never before seen in the parade tradition will be the 'Christmas Mail' float, which will be a physical testament to how Santa hates emails and would rather you write in your Christmas wish list on paper using snail mail. Old St. Nick is old school like that.
Bust out your red hats and reindeer antlers on November 22nd for the 64th Montreal Santa Clause Parade in downtown Montreal. For more information, head over to the official event listing.
