About the Parade

The Grimsby Santa Claus Parade is one of the longest running events in Grimsby. The parade was once a morning event, but in the year 2000 the parade was moved to an evening event to celebrate the millennium. It was such a success that it has remained an evening event ever since. Each year the parade consists of approximately 90 entries which includes community floats, walking groups, marching bands and various entertainment. The Grimsby Santa Claus Parade is the perfect kickoff to your holiday celebrations - don't' miss it.
