Santa Claus is coming to town tomorrow for the annual Downtown St. John’s Christmas Parade. There’ll be Dasher, Dancer, and all the others, along with a full roster of floats, marching bands, cheerleaders and more.

PAL Airlines and Aerospace Meteorologist, Brian Walsh, says it should be a good day weather-wise for the parade, but encourages everyone to bundle up as the wind chill will be about minus 8.

Stacy Ross and Jeff King of CHEK News will host live coverage of the parade from the lawn of the Empress Hotel starting at 4:52 p.m., broadcast on CHEK television and live-streamed on CHEKs Facebook page. It will be re-broadcast on Christmas Day beginning at 5 p.m. on CHEK. Victoria Buzz will also live stream the parade on its Facebook page with former radio hosts Lisa Marshall and Michael Forbes and Buzzs Nicole Bentham.

The 2018 @DowntownStJohns Christmas Parade on Sunday is still looking really nice (minus the cold). It should be mainly sunny with winds gusting 40-50 km/h combined with temperatures near the freezing mark will give wind chills near -8°C. Bundle up the kids! #nlwx pic.twitter.com/ZrVBUpuv6J

The parade, in its 37th year, switched from a day to nighttime event in 1998, thanks to the efforts of the late parade organizer Ron Butlin. Its billed as Canadas largest lighted parade, and this year includes 73 entrants. Of the approximate 15 new additions, one boasts it will come with more than 80,000 lights, said Kelly Kurta, executive director of the Greater Victoria Festival Society.

The parade begins at noon from the Fort William Building on Factory Lane, making its way through downtown.

It was a bitterly cold night for a parade, but such was the sacrifice made on the rare occasions when Santa Claus is in town.

Friday night was the annual Downtown Summerside Santa Claus Parade and plenty of folks braved the blustery and bitterly cold early winter weather to see the big guy himself.

“And he fell off the roof, because I thought he was a burglar. He gives me the card and the whole movie starts. And the kid goes, You just killed Santa. And I said, He shouldnt have been on the roof when he wasnt invited.”

Parents clutched coffee cups a little tighter, blankets were everywhere and some of the smallest kids where so bundled-up that only a pair of wide eyes could be discerned from between layers.

In order to accommodate the parade, some streets will be closed to traffic, 4-7 p.m. (or until the conclusion of the event) with no parking permitted. Anyone parked on the followingstreets after 4 p.m. on Nov. 24 risks being ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense: University Avenue from Enman Crescent to Euston Street; Great George Street from Euston Street to Grafton Street; Grafton Street from Prince Street to West Street; West Street from Grafton Street to Kent Street; Kent Street from West Street to Terry Fox Drive.

“It’s a family tradition, every year,” said Malcolm MacDonald, who was with his wife Marsha, daughter Sorraya and son Peter

The anchor event, the Victorian Christmas Market, is this evening, Saturday and Sunday. Reminiscent of the European Christmas markets, this open-air pedestrian market takes place along two blocks of Queen Street, Kent to Richmond streets; doubling in size from last year to accommodate a growing number of vendors. The streets will be transformed into a winter wonderland filled with an assortment of local vendors, festive music, twinkling lights, carollers and much more.

Santa stoush: Auckland politician says he would have preferred a Santa with boobies

The jolly old elf stopped on Water Street to got down to greet his rosy-cheeked admirers for a few minutes before hurrying on his way to Credit Union Place.

The movie in question is the classic Santa Claus is Comin to Town, which gives fans a new take on the story of Santa Claus, starting from when he was a baby named Kris. The film has been a favorite since it debuted in 1970 and gave us a Santa Claus story filled with iconic voices (Fred Astaire, Mickey Rooney) and memorable animation, and now you can enjoy it with whatevers left over from Thanksgiving Dinner.
