Santa Claus Parade

The 127th  Annual SANTA CLAUS PARADE – the longest running holiday parade in the country - steps off at 10:15 AM on Friday, November 28th (the day after Thanksgiving).   Please join us in this great Peoria tradition as the parade takes a magical journey through the downtown streets of Peoria. The 88 units of costumed characters, novelty walking units, horse units and decorated floats will surely get you in the holiday spirit and certainly delight the children along the route.
