Royale Greater Moncton Santa Claus Parade Notes:  
πŸŽ… parade is November 25, 2023, starting at 5p.
πŸŽ… parade starts at Main St and Cameron, goes down Main Street, and ends at the corner of Champlain and Paul Street.
πŸŽ… from organizers: "The parade begins at 5:00 p.m. at the corner of Cameron and Main Street in Moncton and ends at the corner of Champlain and Paul Street in Dieppe. If you gather before Cameron Street or past the corner of Paul Street, you WILL NOT get to see Santa Claus."
πŸŽ… This Year's Theme is A Bob Hope Christmas! No wait, that doesn't seem right. This year’s theme is The World Celebrates the Season!
πŸŽ… The parade Facebook says you can bring non-perishable food  donations to the parade. *Update: from the Times Transcript: The parade will be led by folks from the RCMP, (so you can definitely still bring a food donation!) πŸ˜€
πŸŽ… Canada Post volunteers will walk the route collecting letters for Santa! You don't need a stamp on your letter, but put your return address on the envelope. Santa's address is "Santa Claus, North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0"
πŸŽ… Moncton Street Closures:
- From 1p until 7p Vaughan Harvey is closed from St. George to Canada Street (intersections are open though.)
- From 3p until 7p Main Street is closed from Enterprise to Cameron Street.
- From 4p until 7p Main Street is closed from Cameron, through to when it becomes Champlain Street and Champlain continues the closure up to Paul Street in Dieppe.
- From 4p to 7p Downing Street is closed from Main Street to Assomption.
πŸŽ… PARKING: see this link (https://downtownmoncton.com/downtown-parking/)
