The Sydney Business Community is proud to announce the return of the Sydney Santa Claus Parade, taking place on Sunday, December 11 at 12 p.m.
The Parade will begin on the corner of Dorchester St. and George St., and will continue on to the Esplanade, Townsend St., George St., and then conclude at Open Hearth Park.
“It’s an absolute joy to have the Sydney Santa Claus Parade return this year, and we can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store for them,” says Alisha Barron, Sydney Santa Claus Parade Committee Chair and Owner of Fired Creations Pottery Painting Cafe. “This year, the Parade will have a new direction as the Sydney Business Community will be taking the reins for the event. We love seeing the businesses and community organizations throughout CBRM step up to throw Christmas events in their Districts, and we’re thrilled to see the comeback of the Sydney Santa Claus Parade, a celebration the community looks forward to each year.”
Along the parade route, hot chocolate and donation stations will be available for parade goers to warm their mittens and give to local charities. This year, we’re also happy to announce People’s Choice Awards for Fan Favourite Float, The Christmas Spirit Award, and Most Original Float. Winners of these awards will receive a one-of-a-kind designed Christmas ornament from the Nova Scotia Power Makerspace.

Traditionally, the annual Sydney Santa Claus Parade was planned and executed by the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) Recreation Department, but with the expected strike within the CBRM Recreation Department, the Sydney Santa Claus Parade Committee was formed to ensure Christmas cheer continues, especially after the past two years of COVID-19. The Sydney Santa Claus Parade Committee elves look forward to continuing to spread Christmas cheer for years to come.
