Santa Claus is coming to town!

Bradford West Gwillimbury, ON (Novemb​er 2, 2021) – The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury is planning a unique approach to the holiday season, making festive celebrations accessible to as many residents as possible by bringing Santa to you! 

On November 20, 21 and 27, we invite you to “Spot Santa" as he travels across BWG to bring holiday spirit to all. Santa and his mini-float – accompanied by South Simcoe Police and BWG Fire & Emergency vehicles using their lights and sirens to let you know Santa is near – will be visiting Bradford and Bond Head. 

Date: Saturday, November 20 and Sunday, November 21, 2021
Time: 9:00am-4:00pm 
Location: urban areas of Bradford
Route: A map of Santa's route will be posted in advance on www.townofbwg.com/Santa. Santa’s exact location throughout the day will also be published online using a ‘Where’s My Santa’ GPS tracking device donated by Trackmatics. The approximate schedule is as follows: 

    • Saturday, November 20 – 9:00am-12:00pm – north of Holland Street, east of Professor Day Drive
    • Saturday, November 20 – 1:00-4:00pm – north of Holland Street, west of Professor Day Drive
    • Sunday, November 21 – 9:00am-2:00pm – south of Holland Street, west of Melbourne Drive
    • Sunday, November 21 – 1:00-4:00pm – south of Holland Street, east of Melbourne Drive

Date: Saturday, November 27, 2021
Time: 11:00am until complete
Location: Bond Head
Details: A map of Santa's route will be posted in advance on www.townofbwg.com/Santa 

Although the provincial government recently announced that full-capacity outdoor events and parades are now permitted, the Town will be moving forward with the Spot Santa event that has been in the works for many weeks. Unfortunately, it is not feasible to put on our traditional parade at the last minute since it takes months of coordination and organizing, particularly on the part of businesses and groups that put so much time and resources into creating their beautiful floats. This decision was not made lightly, and Town staff and Council look forward to 2022 when we can come back bigger than ever to celebrate the parade's 20-year anniversary!
