Time, Date and Location

The official time and date for this year's Santa Claus Parade is from 5:00 pm until 7:30 pm on Saturday, November 26, 2022 in Downtown Brockville.

Royal Christmas

This year's theme

This year's theme is a "Royal Christmas".

It has been 2 years since we have been able to have a traditional parade, so it is with great joy that we are announcing the return to the normal parade, where we are anticipating having upwards of 100 entries.

The entries could be pulled by vehicles, walking, riding, bands, animals, chorists and clowns, all with the theme of a Royal Christmas in mind.

Visit this site often, as it is continually being updated with new information.


As with any large event, traffic congestion can always turn something special into something frustrating, unless you plan ahead.

To maintain the safety of the visitors, no parking will be available on the parade route.

Please see the "Road Closures" section below for important details necessary to plan your route to the area.

We recommend that you consider walking and leaving your vehicle at home or further away from the downtown core.

This will leave spaces available for visitors who may have difficulty managing the extended distances.

River of Lights

river of lights

The River of Lights is a COVID-19 safe holiday light display on Blockhouse Island which includes thousands of twinkle lights and flood lights set to music. Set your car radio to 88.1FM and enjoy the show from the comfort of your vehicle. The first and final hours each night display a static light show (no music), while between 6:00pm and 10:00pm each night the light and sound show will run in a loop, making the trees dance with lights as a mix of contemporary music and classic holiday tunes entertain you.

The show runs nightly from November 26 to January 2 from 5pm-11pm.

Please visit the River of Lights website for more details.
