Oakville Santa Claus Parade Supports Attentive Driving Habits

The Ministry of Transportation and CAA support evidence that distracting driving is on the rise.  The Oakville Santa Claus Parade kindly requests that if you are driving a motorized vehicle in the parade, that you turn off your device for the duration of the parade.  With walkers, vehicles, animals, and parade viewers, sharing the Lakeshore/Kerr parade route, it is critical drivers remain focused at all times.  Thank you.

Parade Route - all seats are good seats!
