Charlottetown Christmas Parade
Santa’s sleigh is stocked and the floats are frilled for the Charlottetown Christmas Parade! The spirit and sparkle of the Charlottetown Christmas Parade returns to the Capital City on November 25. Beginning at 5 pm, the parade will travel down University Avenue/Great George Street from the main entrance of UPEI to Grafton Street, continuing on Grafton Street to West Street then to Kent Street. The parade will end at the Provincial Government Building parking lot. The public is encouraged to line the parade route and experience the seasonal music, festive lights, and holiday magic of this signature City of Charlottetown event. Spectators are reminded to gather along the route early, as volunteers from the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry will be collecting donations of non-perishable food items along the parade route beginning at 4:30 pm. Children are also encouraged to bring their letters for Santa to be collected by Canada Post employees at the front and back of the parade lineup. Don’t forget to include a return address on all letters to Santa! The parade route will be closed to all traffic beginning at 3 pm. on November 25, and the public is reminded to heed the instructions from parade organizers, security, and police to make this a safe and fun event for all.
