Parking and lane restrictions will be in effect in the downtown area on Sunday, November 17 for the Santa Claus Parade, between 7 a.m. until around 3 p.m. The downtown area will be busy and parking restrictions will be in place during this time. There will be no access to the parade route between Idylwyld Drive, 19th Street, 4th Avenue, 22 Street, and 1st Avenue.  

Road users are encouraged to allow extra time to reach their downtown destination.  

People attending the parade can avoid the traffic and parking by choosing to use Transit to attend the parade. Buses traveling through the city centre will navigate the detours for you.
