For 23 years the Fabulous Fenwick Lions have hosted the
“Pelham Santa Claus Parade”
This year a modified “Reverse Parade” in Centennial Park will replace the traditional parade experience.
What is a “Reverse Parade?” – in this format, the floats become a stationary display and spectators instead drive through the route to view the displays from the safety of their vehicle.
What is a Parade Pass?
Parade attendees will be required to have a Parade Pass for entry into the Parade route. Parade passes are available in limited quantities based on event capacity. Town of Pelham residents can register for a pass starting on December 1, 2020. Open registration begins December 10 2020 for all other areas.
*Limited Parade Passes are available, one per household.
What type of floats are there?
Local businesses and community groups will have displays instead of traditional floats. They will be along the route that parade attendees will drive by. This years parade will have fewer participants than normal in order to allow for physical distancing. There will be a minimum of 12 different displays.
I’m a Local business – can I participate?
Applications are still open for businesses and community groups who would like to have a display along the route. Please complete an application form. APPLY HERE
How long will the Parade take?
We anticipate there will be a line to enter the Parade in Centennial Park. Once a vehicle has passed the start of the Parade, it is expected that the actual drive by of the displays will take approximately 10 to 15 min.
I have my Parade Pass, how do I get to Centennial Park?
Please enter Church street by way of Foss Road only. Niagara Regional Police and parade volunteers will be onsite to assist with traffic.
How fast will vehicles be going?
Once vehicles enter the parade route inside Centennial Park, we ask that you maintain a 10km/h speed to ensure the safety of our volunteers. Watch for volunteers directions and maintain the distance between vehicles.
Will Santa be there?
Yes! Santa will be part of the Parade!
Do I have to stay in my vehicle?
For the safety of our volunteers and community, each participant will need to remain in their vehicle for the duration of the Reverse Parade. No foot traffic will be permitted.
