Oakville Santa Claus Parade Nov 17

Dear BIA members,

The Oakville Santa Claus Parade will pass through Downtown Oakville on November 17, 2018, starting at 9:00am.

Lakeshore Rd, Robinson St, and Reynolds St (between Lakeshore and Robinson) will be closed from 7am - 11am, on Nov 17. See parade route and closures.

Families often begin gathering to secure their viewing spot around 8:00am.  Once their spot is secure, people are often looking for food and/or to shop to fill their time as they wait.  You may wish to take advantage of this opportunity by adjusting your hours that morning.

This year there will be no candy or toys provided via outside vendors (I would assume parade participants may still hand out items) - parade officials made this change this year to remove any sales conflict from those businesses along the parade route.  You may choose to sell product directly outside your business during the parade.  Please contact the BIA if you have any questions about doing so.

Please note that the Oakville Santa Claus Parade is not a BIA event and is operated by a separate organisation.  

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the BIA office, or the parade officials directly.

Thank you,

Sharlene Plewman
Executive Director
