Until then, welcome to the
34th (Virtual) High River Santa Claus Parade
Sit back and enjoy memories of Santa Claus Parades past and present to remember for Christmases to come.
Light Up High River
If George Lane Park full of lights could create such joy, imagine what the whole of High River dressed up might cause!
That was the spark behind this friendly town-wide contest to determine the favourite display of the season. Everyone is welcome to participate and share their love of Christmas and the holiday season. No decoration or string of lights is too small.

Visit With Santa
Santa has a special spot in his heart for High River and rearranged his schedule with the elves to have as much time as possible visiting with children.
Santa At The Museum
The Museum was chosen as a special workshop for Santa. Children can chat with the jolly old fellow while he tinkers away on toys and such. Keep on the watch for elves popping in and out from the North Pole. Schedule by donation for your family to see Santa in his workshop with the Museum of the Highwood.
