Santa Claus is coming to town…but a little bit differently this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year the Original Santa Claus Parade will be televised in a two-hour primetime special instead of its usual outdoor parade in the City of Toronto to celebrate the holiday season.
The 116th annual event will be televised without marchers and spectators to adhere to health and safety protocols to stop the spread of the virus.
The parade was pre-recorded at Vaughan Amusement Park, Canada’s Wonderland and will air on Saturday, December 5 at 7 p.m. on CTV and CTV2.
The TV special will be hosted by CTV media personalities Melissa Grelo and Kelsey McEwen.
Twenty-three floats will be included in this year’s parade, along with a variety of musical guest performances and celebrity appearances.
In addition, the parade is offering a Christmas 50/50 raffle which will support MLSE Foundation and CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish.
