Santa Claus is Coming to Kingsville

The Town of Kingsville and Fantasy of Lights Committee is pleased to announce that this year’s Santa Claus parade will take place in downtown Kingsville on Saturday, November 20, 2021.

“As the Chair of the Kingsville Fantasy of Lights Committee, I was disheartened to learn about the decision of the Windsor Parade Corporation on social media,” said Councillor Tony Gaffan. “However, I believe the strength of the Kingsville community as a whole is far stronger! As a community, we will unite to create a parade experience that is distinctly us and uniquely Kingsville.”

The theme this year is “What does Christmas mean to me”. The Town is asking children of all ages to please hold the date of November 20.

The Town is asking for volunteers, families, service groups, and businesses to consider how they can contribute to the parade. A participant’s form can be found here: https://forms.kingsville.ca/Events/Santa-Claus-Parade-Vendor-Form

“As a close-knit community, we are all excited to celebrate the traditions that the Fantasy of Lights has brought to Kingsville. I want to acknowledge the commitment and dedication of the Festival Committee, volunteers and staff throughout the year to help keep the Lights shining,” expressed Mayor Nelson Santos. “We look forward to seeing Santa join our community parade and help us flick the switch on November 20th.”

    BRAVO to Kingsville’s Fantasy of Lights Committee and your upcoming November 20th Santa Claus Parade! Still stuck on the States side of the border, I start every morning with a cup-a-tea and my Kingsville Times (thank-you KT) and continue to regard Kingsville (the “home of my people,” 75% of them back to the 1700s) as a beacon of hope for a world struggling to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. I’ve never been more proud of my origin!
