Santa Claus is coming... to town! Yes, that's the first song to get stuck in my head when I think of Christmas parades, I can't hep it! Here's the dates and routes for the popular Christmas Parades in Edmonton and surrounding areas. I know the last 2 are far away... but they're very cool so just wanted to throw them out there!

Note: There will be no Jingle On Indoor Santa Claus Parade this year. This was previously listed, and we apologize for any confusion.
