Santa Claus Parade – Call for Entries

The annual Santa Claus Parade, sponsored by Thompson Rivers University, returns Saturday November 24th and Downtown Kamloops would like to invite you to join the biggest outdoor celebration of the winter season!


Wake up Santa will take place at 10:30 a.m.

Parade starting at 11:00 a.m.

This year’s Santa Claus Parade theme is “Retro Rockin’ Christmas” and amazing parade entries are being accepted now!

Want to join the fun?

Wow the crowds with a decade themed float (are you a fan or the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s?), pick your favourite rockin celebrity to impersonate or dig through the pop-culture archives and showcase a blast from the past! Parade entry applications will be juried this year so make sure you’ve got an incredibly festive décor plan to make your entry shine above the rest.

Did you know the parade has Rules & Regulations? For example, all entries must be fully decorated and people in costume, festive attire or uniforms!

There are 20 FREE non-profit spots available (first come first serve to those who submit a completed application) courtesy of Kamloops Square Management. Commercial businesses will be charged a $100 parade entry fee and $50 for non-profit entries.   

Thank you to all of you who continuously support the parade and those who have already taken the time to sign up. Enthusiasm is what makes this amazing community event an unforgettable one!
