Join us for the 42nd Annual Santa Parade in Downtown Kamloops! Presented by Thompson Rivers University.

Santa Parade 2022

Get cozy in your PJs for this year’s Santa Parade!

The Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association and Thompson Rivers University are excited to announce the return of the 42nd annual Santa Parade on Sunday, November 27, 2022.

This year’s theme is Pyjama Party. EVERYONE is invited to show up in their coziest PJs and join Kamloops’ biggest pyjama party! All participants will be illuminated for the evening parade and encouraged to be in pyjamas as well.

Executive Director Howie Reimer is enthusiastic about building on last year’s success.

“Kamloops loves this event and we want to make sure it’s a cherished time for families and all Kamloopsians. The Pyjama Party theme will add another fun element, and the lights at dusk make the event such a spectacle. We anticipate filling up fast, so register early. Thanks so much to TRU. This event couldn’t happen without their generous community support.”

Thompson Rivers University is thrilled to once again be the title sponsor for the event.

“The holiday season is so important to so many people. It’s a chance for all of us to get together with family and friends, and with each other as community neighbours. Events like the Santa Parade bring people together in celebration,” said Brian Daly, TRU’s Vice-President of University Relations. “All of us at TRU are excited to be part of this event, and we encourage everyone in Kamloops to take part — either as participants or spectators. Truly, there is something here for everyone.”

Time: Parade festivities will begin at 4:10 p.m. on Sunday, November 27th with a special “wake-up Santa,” followed by the parade at 4:30 p.m.

Location: Starting at 2nd Ave & St. Paul Street, through 2nd Avenue to Victoria Street and along Victoria Street ending at 6th Avenue
