The City of Fort St. John is pleased to be hosting the Santa Claus Parade and Christmas Tree Light-up in Centennial Park on Saturday, December 3, 2022. Roads will be shut down from approximately 4 – 7:30 pm on 100 Street between 93 and 100 avenues, and no public vehicle access will be permitted to increase safety for parade spectators and pedestrians. Additionally, there will be road closures near 98 Street and 110 Avenue to allow for parade marshalling.
On the day of the parade, no parking signs will be moved onto the road to ensure that if vehicle traffic cannot parallel park. In addition to this, a series of detour signage will be placed out on 102 Street and 98 Street to deter traffic from getting close to 100 Street. Those who wish to view the Parade from their vehicles are encouraged to park on 100 Street north of 100 Avenue. When leaving the parade area, please note the high-traffic areas at 100 Street and 96 Avenue and plan an alternate route to avoid heavy congestion.
