It’s that time of year when kids everywhere are making their lists and checking them twice. For many children in Ottawa, however, it’s a little different – this year, more than ever. Their hoped-for toy may not be under the tree waiting Christmas morning unless we have your help.
The Help Santa Toy Parade is back on track for 2023 for our 54th year! The parade will be occurring on November 18, 2023 at 11:00am.
We are so excited to have everyone lining the streets to cheer on Santa as he delivers joy to children everywhere.
Give generously to the “Help Santa Campaign” where your donations will go directly to support the important work of CTV and MOVE 100’s Toy Mountain in support of Ottawa's Toy Mountain. Toy Mountain gives toys to local families that might otherwise not be able to have gifts at Christmas.
The route will start at Elgin and Laurier where it will head west to Bank Street. At Bank Street it will turn south heading towards Lansdowne Park. It will end here.
TH ANNUAL PARADE
We would not be able to run this parade without our amazing volunteers. We offer signatures for anyone looking to fill their volunteer hours. Our volunteers will be posted at all road closures and will help ensure that people know where to go. Six hours is the approximate commitment. We welcome everyone to volunteer.
