This year's Christmas Parade commences at 10:30am on Sunday, November 20th. I attended last year and didn't enjoy it because the route was so short that it was virtually impossible to find a vantage point to watch it where there weren't 7 layers of people in front of you. Even though I'm 6'1" I saw practically nothing. The organizers have switched from Shaw to Rogers and they seem to have realized this, significantly lengthening the route. If you're going to go, be sure to dress warm, including a hat and scarf, and wear comfortable shoes or boots.
