Join us for the 2014 Parade


The Grimsby Santa Claus parade is a great community event that is only possible through the participation and enthusiasm of community organizations.

It is free to enter into the parade for community groups and non profit groups, and just $50.00-$100.00 for business entries.  These fees go towards our parade costs which include Police Services, Marching Bands and other operational costs.

Each year the parade has a different theme so that groups are continually challenged to be creative and 'festive'.



Companies that will be willing to lend out trailers for floats are listed below:

TDL Maintenance: (905)-945-7777   (Contact Rob or Tamara)

Darren Stone: (905)-978-0276

Aberfoyle Crane Rentals (Kevin)  289-440-3517

Thank you for your support this year!



There are 4 categories for judging each year.  They are:  best business / commercial, best school or church, best non-commercial / non-profit and biggest crowd pleaser.  Awards for the winning entries are presented at Town Council in January.  Judges are looking for appearance, originality, keeping to the theme and enthusiasm of participants. Judging is completed by selected citizens.
