Santa Claus Parade Activities and Road Closures

The 19th Annual Santa Claus Parade is this Saturday, November 19, 2022. Jasperson Drive will close at 3:00 pm to allow for parade staging, and sections of Main Street East, Division Street South and Park Street will close at 4:30 pm. All connecting side streets along the route will be barricaded. Please see the parade route map for details.

That Kingsville Podcast will be on the balcony of the Grove Hotel announcing each entry as it passes. Many groups and organizations are accepting donations as they walk the parade line.

“We’re proud to hold a parade that is distinctly ‘Kingsville’” said Fantasy of Lights Chair and Councillor Tony Gaffan. “We want to thank everyone; our staff, volunteers, community groups, and sponsors for helping to make this a magical night for kids of all ages in our community.”

After the parade, everyone is invited to meet at Lakeside Park for the 30th Annual Fantasy of Lights Opening Ceremonies. Enjoy hot chocolate, Christmas caroling, and the official flick of the switch to light the displays. Fireworks will follow.

The Fantasy of Lights Festival continues until January 4, 2023, with many activities planned, including:

  • The Twelve Days of Christmas Virtual Scavenger Hunt
  • Kingsville Express Train Rides
  • Christmas Artisan Markets
  • Paws and Claus
  • Crafts with Santa
