our parade

Each year, Santa Claus kicks off the Canal Winchester Christmas in the Village Festival with a parade ride around Canal Winchester to say hi to all of his friends and the children of Canal Winchester.  This year will be a little different. The parade will be SATURDAY! We are very excited about this change as it will allow us to extend our route a little bit and will not cause the traffic issues in the downtown area during rush hour.  We are also looking to expand the route to encompass more of the community.

If you can drive it or ride it, you can

decorate it with holiday lights.

Christmas music? Sure!  

Let your imagination "LIGHT UP" our night.    The only rule is No Fake Santas!  

We have the real deal in our parade!

Brock Johnson - In Memoriam
In 2014, our inaugural  parade, we had the pleasure of having CW Middle School student, Brock Johnson be our first Grand Marshall. Sadly, we lost our amazing friend on May 20th, 2015. He will always be part of our community.  Brock always lit up our lives with his enthusiasm and  contagious smile. His legacy will continue in our hearts, community and parade.  Brock's family and friends started a the Brockstrong Foundation which gives

back to our community and to

children's hospital patients.
