Cannington Lions 71st Annual Santa Claus Parade

Saturday November 24, 2018

Special thank you to everyone who helped make our 2018 Santa Claus Parade a successful one! Thanks to everyone who entered a float, to the McCaskill's Mills School band and the Sunderland School band, the wonderful volunteers, The Legion, Campbell's TV and Appliance, Durham Regional Police, Cannington Firefighters Association, our various parade sponsors, and of course Santa and Mrs. Claus. We also want to thank the many people who came down to watch the parade and visit with Santa afterward. Thank you and we'll see you next year. Merry Christmas!

Would you like to support or sponsor our parade?

The Cannington Lions Club welcomes community support for our parade.  Funds are used for the parade to pay for bands, supplies, costumes, and more.  Any excess funds are used for future parades or to cover past parade deficits

If you're interested in supporting our parade please contact Lion Diane at

All parade sponsors will be recognized during the parade and will receive a receipt where needed.

Want to be a Parade Judge?

The Cannington Lions Club welcomes members of our community to step forward each year to help us judge our parade floats.  If you would like to help out doing this important job then please contact Lion Bo Enss at 705-432-3241  or email

Want to be a clown?

We're always looking for some volunteers to help us hand out balloons and candy to people along the parade route.  We will provide the makeup and costumes.... you provide the Christmas spirit.  This is a great opportunity for high school students looking for community service hours.
