Beginning Saturday, November 9 at 6 p.m., the Santa Claus Parade will travel west down Dundas Street, beginning at Highbury Avenue, then north up Wellington Street to Queens Avenue, and continuing west over the Queens Avenue bridge. The parade route will be closed as early as 5:30 p.m. by London Police and re-opened, east to west, intersection by intersection, as the last float clears. The parade could end as late as 9 p.m. and all routes should re-open by 9:30 p.m.
During this time, LTC bus routes will be on detour. Highbury Avenue and Wharncliffe Road will be the key north/south routes for motorists.
Each year, the parade brings tens of thousands of families to London’s core area. Motorists are reminded to travel slowly and stay alert for pedestrians.
