The Sidney Sparkles Parade is happening tonight, and you know we’ll be there to cover it!

For those who can’t make the , Victoria Buzz will be live streaming the entire parade on our Facebook page thanks to Buddies Toys, Peninsula Celebrations Society and the Sidney BIA and it’ll be the first time this Christmas tradition has been broadcasted live.

The livestream will utilize multiple high definition cameras to bring you a crystal clear view of downtown Sidney as it buzzes with excitement.

The annual parade, which is hosted by the Peninsula Celebrations Society, begins at Resthaven Drive, runs through the centre of town along Beacon Avenue and ends at Ocean Avenue.

This annual treat is one every Saanich Peninsula dweller and visitor looks forward to!

Watch Live:

The parade begins at 5 p.m. and we will go live at around 5:15 p.m. when the parade nears our broadcast location at Beacon Avenue and 2nd Street.

The fun doesn’t end after the Sidney Sparkles parade!

Once the parade completes its route, people are encouraged to move to Beacon and Bevan wharves and the Sidney waterfront around Beacon Park.

From there, you will be able to witness the Lighted Boat Parade, which starts at least 15 minutes after the parade.

A Lighted Sail Past will also begin at dusk at Port Sidney.
