Santa Claus is coming to town for the 15th annual Nighttime Santa Parade Saturday, November 17th!  The parade will leave from Innovation Park at 5:00pm (Bath Road & Princess Street) and travel down Princess to Ontario Street.

Spectators are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items for the Food Bank as well as letters to Santa!

We have partnered with Rotary Clubs of Kingston and Easter Seals Ontario, Southeastern Ontario to offer viewing accomodation for families with accessibility needs. More information on Rotary Comfort Zones will be posted soon.

The big guy himself will be on hand after in Springer Market Square for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony in Springer Market Square. Come help us officially kick off the holiday season!

Kingston Transit is guaranteed to be on Santa’s good list again this year - rides on city busses on all routes will be free all day! Plan your ride at
