After the pandemic left him and his reindeer parked at the North Pole, Santa Claus is back in Kamloops this year.
After a one-year hiatus, the Santa Claus Parade will return this year to downtown Kamloops. The annual event hosted by the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association includes community floats and a visit from the Jolly Old Elf in a red suit. It will take place on Sunday, Nov. 28.
The theme of the parade this year is Luminous Loops. With parade festivities getting underway in the late afternoon, participants are being asked to utilize lights in creative ways. Wake Up Santa starts at 4:10 p.m. and the parade begins at 4:30 p.m. Floats will travel along Victoria Street from Second Avenue to Sixth Avenue.
