Welcome to the annual family tradition brought to you by the Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce, where 80 floats will light up Mission’s Downtown with lights, music and of course Santa.
First Avenue in Mission will be closed, cleaned and decorated, in anticipation of the arrival of Santa Claus for the largest nighttime Christmas parade in B.C. The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce, along with the District of Mission and help from the Downtown Business Association hosts this annual event, now in its 34th year. The parade officially begins Dec 7, 2018, at 7:30 pm when the first float will make its way west down First Avenue, but come by earlier to get a good view and check out all pre-festival fun.
Up to 80 floats are expected this year to celebrate the merriest of seasons and to bring the community together in Christmas Spirit. This event would not happen if not for the generosity and support of the local businesses and community organizations. Yet, another reminder of how important it is to shop local and support community groups.
Special thanks to all of our partners and emergency/safety team. Mission Fire Department and the Mission RCMP. and Community Policing.
