Despite attempts to make it happen, the Santa Claus Parade won’t be happening in Oakville this year.
Instead, Santa will make his presence felt by taking part in a fireside chat with Mayor Rob Burton. And, St. Nick will take the opportunity to answer some questions from his many fans and welcome a few gift requests that he hopes to deliver on.
The chat will take place next Saturday, Nov. 21 at 9 a.m.
The move away from the parade this year was made due to social gathering restrictions because of the coronavirus.
Questions for Santa can’t be sent in a few formats. Complete guidelines can be found here.
On the big day, viewers can tune in at oakvillesantaclausparade.ca to watch the merriment and kick-off the festive season.
