Toronto - Tens of thousands of men, women and children in Toronto gathered on the parade route on a cold, windy day in Toronto to experience 31 floats, 24 marching bands and the famous figure of Santa Claus.
In the United States, Thanksgiving is right around the corner but in Canada, the Christmas season has already bestowed upon us and Santa Claus, with his reindeer, made a stop in the city of Toronto on Sunday.
From the west end’s Christie Pits to the Ontario Legislature at Queen’s Park to downtown’s St. Lawrence Market, the 106th annual Santa Claus Parade made its way through Toronto accompanied by 31 floats, 24 marching bands, hundreds of celebrity clowns, upside down monkeys and others.
The five-kilometre parade featured floats by Sobey’s grocery store, Lego, the animated motion picture “Tangled,” “McDonald’s,” “Tim Horton’s,” “Mother Goose,” “Pizza Pizza” and many others.
The world’s longest-running children’s parade took place on a very cold, windy and dark day. As the parade continued, the winds became stronger and the temperature continued to dip. McDonald’s handed out free coffee at its restaurant at Avenue Road and Bloor Street and to members of the crowd.
Christmas is a little more than 4 weeks away.
