·1 min read

SCUGOG: The Port Perry Santa Claus parade is switching back to its normal format.

Originally, parade organizers had planned to hold a reverse-parade, at the Port Perry Fairgrounds. In this format, residents could walk or drive through the fairgrounds and see the floats, Christmas trees and hear live music. However, on Tuesday, November 16th, the Scugog Chamber announced a change to the way the parade would be held.

“Due to changes in regulations from the Province, we have been given the go-ahead to change the format of the parade to a traditional road parade! Please join us Saturday, December 4th, as we celebrate the return of Santa Claus to Scugog,” read a Facebook post from the Scugog Chamber of Commerce.

The parade will start at 5 p.m., on Saturday, December 4th. It will begin at the corner of Reach Street and Simcoe Street, and will then travel south to Queen St., then east to Water Street before finishing its journey at Mary Street.

The Scugog Chamber encourages people to wear masks when in attendance, if “two metre social distancing cannot be maintained.”
