Nighttime Santa Parade 2020

This year’s Nighttime Santa Claus Parade is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of Kingston, Downtown Kingston! and KFL&A Public Health are concerned that this successful annual event will attract too large a crowd to safely allow individuals to physically distance from each other and follow the public health measures that are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

The parade may be cancelled but Kingston’s holiday spirit will still be present downtown.

“We’ve heard that the elves are busy working on a few surprises that will add fun to the season in safe way,” says Michèle Langlois, Downtown Kingston’s Interim Executive Director. 

Stay tuned on our website ( for details on seasonal events later this fall.
