Pavillion and Pine Tree Covered in Christmas LightsOne of the highlights of the year is the annual Santa Claus Parade. Approximately 20,000 people line Brock Street each year to watch the marching bands, dance groups, floats, clowns and musical entertainment - all in anticipation of catching a glimpse of Santa Claus and his reindeer.

The parade is sponsored by JCI Durham, a membership-based non-profit organization of young people aged 18 to 40 years, who seek targeted solutions to unique problems in the community.

Both JCI Durham and the Whitby Chamber of Commerce judge the best parade entries, which can be viewed on the JCI website. The best overall entry is announced at the Parade Awards Dinner in January.

When: December 7, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. - Noon

Where: Parade route is along Brock Street from Manning Road to Trent Street.
