Hello and welcome to all 2018 Santa Parade Participants!
Being just hours away, I wanted to provide you with the information you will need for the preparation of the parade. As in previous years, the marshalling area will be on Martin Street.
The large parking lot on the 400 block of Martin Street will be available for last minute adjustments or you may go directly to your spot.
Below you will find information for the event as well as the listing of all participants. We all are looking forward to seeing you Saturday and the good news is that the weather is not calling for rain!
See you all on Saturday!

**** FREE Downtown Street Parking Starts Saturday ****
The City of Penticton has authorized FREE street parking (including stalls with parking meters) downtown each Saturday in December (Dec. 1, 8, 15, 22 & 29).
Conveniently, tomorrow’s parade is one of the five Saturdays, so holiday shoppers and parade spectators will find parking to be widely accessible throughout the downtown area even while Main Street closes for the parade.
