Jackson set to kick off Downtown Jackson Christmas Parade

Santa Claus parades are spread out across Kitchener Waterloo and Guelph this weekend

Roads will close for this year's Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade just as fans will be heading the Bell MTS Place for a Jets game and the city is asking drivers to plan ahead.

Environment Canada is predicting a high of 2 degrees C for Saturday.

Santa Claus will light the Christmas tree with its 500 branches and 25,000 lights at 6:30 p.m.

All proceeds from this year's parade will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Saskatchewan. Spectators can line both sides of Jasper Avenue to watch the almost 30 entries in this year's parade. He's really looking forward to making his way south for the parade.

Santa Claus is coming to town

It's the official start to the urban Christmas festivities season - at least as far as road closures go.

The other major change is that the fireworks display that erupts over the downtown at the end of the parade will now occur before the parade - about 5:15 p.m. rather than about 7 p.m.

The parade itself, which runs from 12:30 p.m.to 4 p.m. will shut down University Avenue from Bloor to Wellington Streets West, Wellington between University and Yonge Streets, Yonge between Wellington and Front Streets, and Front between Yonge and Jarvis Streets.
