THE PARADE AND REMEMBRANCE DAY
The parade date was set as the second Saturday in November when it started in 1956. Sometimes this day falls after Remembrance Day, sometimes before. We have no control over the calendar or the weather. Other entertainment venues operate all weekend and charge an admission. Our parade is free. There is no connection to Remembrance Day and no disrespect is meant. We have veterans in the parade and we buy poppies for 200 of our volunteers. There are many valid reasons why we cannot change the date including conflicts.
The London Santa Claus Parade Committee is comprised of a small group of dedicated volunteers who strive to put on an entertaining Santa Claus event for the children of Western Ontario.
While the parade is a Corporation for liability purposes, committee members receive no salary.
