This year's Santa Claus Parade in Toronto was the largest ever
Toronto's original Santa Claus Parade is still going strong at the ripe old age of 114 – stronger than ever, in fact, like one of those centenarians on the news who credit their longevity to whisky and nitrates.
Thousands of kids (and kids-at-heart) made it out to this year's annual Christmas kick-off event in downtown Toronto yesterday for what turned out to be the largest parade of its kind to date.
The event's executive director, Clay Charters, confirmed to The Star on Sunday that this year's parade was "our largest Santa Claus parade" in Toronto so far, based on the number of floats.
Previous to 2018, the highest recorded number of floats in the parade's history was 30, so, as Charters says, "we’re two floats longer than there's ever been before."
"Get in children!" says Santa. "We're going shopping."
