Santa Claus Parade

The annual Santa Claus parade falls on the first Saturday in December. Each year the City of Fort St. John sees approximately 35 to 60 floats rolling down 100 Street showing off their Christmas Spirit. All floats must be decorated and the top three floats will be selected by volunteer judges. 

This year the 2020 BC Games will be joining the celebrations! We will be delighted with two light ups, Chritmas Tree and the BC Games Torch.

Parade application forms are available now.

 Deadline for entries – Friday November 29, 2019 at 8 pm
