Annual Santa Claus Parade of Lights

Date: November 26th, 2016

The 2016 Annual City of Pembroke Santa Claus Parade of Lights will be held on:
                                         Saturday, November 26th at 5:30pm.

The parade will begin from Moncion’s Metro back parking lot and proceed through our City’s historic downtown, finishing at L’Equinoxe Public School at the corner of Pembroke St. and Christie St. 
Following the parade a hot dog reception, courtesy of the Pembroke Professional Firefighters Association, will be held for all participants.

For parade participants who register a float before November 14, 2016, a final package will be mailed to you; otherwise, you can pick up your registration number along with the final package at the Recreation Dept. located inside the Pembroke Memorial Centre, 393 Pembroke St. W, Upper Level. 

This year’s theme for the Santa Claus Parade of Lights is:  

                                            “A Charlie Brown Christmas”

Parade participants can draw inspiration from this classic story and decorate their float while illustrating this year’s theme.


There is no charge to enter a float into the parade, however, you must register your float at least 1 business day prior to the day of the parade. 
By entering a float you will be able to raise awareness for your cause, as well enjoy the event with your friends, family and the community. It is essential that the description portion of the registration form is filled out as accurately as possible for the TV broadcast and that your float is strung with Christmas lights, if not, your float will not be registered into the parade. We also recommend that you consider adding music to your float, as it contributes to the festivities in general, and engages the audience lining the streets of downtown Pembroke.
Please see the attached registration form.

Register your float before October 31st, for a chance to win $100.00 Downtown Dollars!  Downtown Dollars are redeemable at any retail or restaurant in Downtown Pembroke!

This year, Cogeco TV would like to do a pre-story on the Santa Claus Parade of Lights and are looking to cover a couple of parade participants as they prepare their float for the Santa Claus Parade of Lights. If you would be interested in a cover story, simply check yes on the registration form! There is limited space for this opportunity.

We look forward to having you part of another successful parade!  Ho Ho Hope to see you there!
