The longest running children's parade in the World made its way through our City streets this afternoon. The streets were very crowded as usual, with little kids ranging in age from 6 months to 85 years young. Everyone was thrilled to see Santa and his reindeer, and all the other 'animals' running loose on our streets.
Here are a few 'moments' from today's parade....

Toronto's Santa Claus Parade started in 1913, when Santa was actually pulled by live reindeer, which had been brought in from Labrador, specifically for the parade.
By 1950, the Parade was the largest in North America and was first televised in 1952. Today, it is televised all over North America, and as far as New Zealand.
