Christmas Parade

Champlain Christmas Parade

Champlain Christmas Parade

Date: Friday, December 2, 2022
Time: Starts at 6:30 p.m. at Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute (VCI)

The parade will travel northbound along Highway 34 to Perreault Street, Home Avenue, Stanley Avenue, Higginson Street, Derby Avenue, to Main Street East and end at the streetlights of Highway 34 and County Road 10.

After several years of successfully organizing the Vankleek Hill Parade of Lights, Excellent Events has turned the event over to the Township. After a long two-year break, Champlain is very proud to bring back the beloved parade to our community and we want to celebrate. Many suprises are in store this year and we guarantee that great memories will be made!

This parade is not possible without the support of partners and, of course, lots of floats! Friends, families, local businesses, community groups, and entertainers are all invited to participate and help us bring the holiday spirit to life. We have plenty of creative people in our Township so let’s take this one to the next level.
