The seventh-annual Surrey Santa Claus parade takes place in downtown Cloverdale on Dec. 2 from 5-6:30 p.m.

Santa will guide his sleigh to town with help from the special guest truck elves from Central City Shopping Centre’s Big Rigs for Kids, colourful floats, antique cars, trucks, boats and horses.

Cloverdale parade organizers ask that you consider bringing a donation to the parade for either the Surrey Food Bank or the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

The parade route is expanded this year. At 5 p.m., it leaves the Cloverdale Fairgrounds at 176A Street, heads east on 60 Avenue, turns right on 177B Street, heads south to 58 Avenue and then turns west to 176 Street.

The parade then heads south again to Highway 10.

At the end of the parade, Santa returns to Hawthorne Square for a brief tree-lighting ceremony.

Surrey’s Santa Parade is organized by the Cloverdale Business Improvement Association and the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce.

For more information, call 604-574-9802 or 604-576-3155.
