Calling all lovers of the Island Farms Victoria Santa’s Light Parade: share the holiday joy of this occasion with family and friends and don’t miss one moment, using our first livestream of the event!

The 35th annual parade, taking place Saturday, November 26 from 5:45 p.m. to approximately 6:45 p.m. local time, will be livestreamed by Victoria Buzz on Facebook and YouTube thanks to our friends at Roll.Focus. Productions. We are pleased to partner with parade host Greater Victoria Festival Society, and our key sponsors Island FarmsThrifty Foods and The Butchart Gardens.

The parade begins at Belleville Street making its way along Government Street, until it ends at Fisgard Street. Join Santa after for milk and cookies in Centennial Square!

The livestream will begin once the parade reaches our broadcast location at Frankie’s Modern Diner, who has been an invaluable partner to our teams.

Join hosts Dana Hutchings of Power to Be and Nicole Bentham of Victoria Buzz as they guide us through the 82 float entries – the largest Santa’s Light Parade to date! Some of our favorite participants include the Royal Canadian Navy Naden Band, the always-popular Cowichan Lady of the Lake, the dozen Bernese Mountain dogs, and of course the Jolly Ol’ Elf himself.

Remember to post a comment to let us know you’re watching!

So if you are unable to be in downtown Victoria on Saturday evening – or if you are not willing to brave the elements or crowd this year – be sure to tune in and we will have you covered at Victoria Buzz!
