One Ontario Spot Is Saving Christmas Spirit By Having A 'Reverse' Santa Claus Parade

"Santa told us he wants everyone to be safe."

One Ontario spot is working together to make sure that they don't miss out on the Christmas magic. 

The Lions Club of Kitchener has announced that they will be having a "reverse" Santa Claus parade this winter.  

While many parades have been cancelled this year due to COVID-19, both Kitchener and Waterloo will be hosting the event.

November 14 & 21, 2020 'reverse' Santa Claus parade dates

Instead of watching the parade drive by you, this year will look a little different. 

Residents can hop in their cars and drive-by stationery floats to experience the Christmas magic in reverse. 

"Santa told us he wants everyone to be safe so we are doing a reverse parade this year!" read a statement. 

The event will be taking place in Kitchener on Saturday, November 14 and in Waterloo on Saturday, November 21. 

Other holiday events, like the popular Toronto Christmas Market, remained cancelled.
