Santa Claus will make three stops in Ottawa on Saturday, Dec. 4.
The Ottawa Professional Firefighters Association has announced plans for the “Help Santa Parade of Lights”, with stops in downtown Ottawa, Kanata and Orleans.
“It’s going to start in the afternoon on Saturday, Dec. 4 and it’s going to transition with starting in Kanata – a small parade in Kanata, followed by the exact same parade in downtown and then moving the same parade to Orleans,” said Bob Rainboth. “By doing so, we start with a day parade and it’s going to transition into a night parade, and therefore it meets all the wonderful elements that we have with both our parades.”
Details on the parade routes will be announced shortly.
