Santa Claus Parade
What is the parade?
The Santa Claus Parade is the Village of Hamburg’s official kickoff for the holiday season. “Hamburg Believes” will be the theme for this year’s parade that features more than 70 contingents, including floats, vehicles, walking units, animals, and more!
Why should you participate?
The Santa Claus Parade boasts a crowd of over 1,000 people. Register now to see and be seen by families from all over Western New York! In addition to the fun you’ll have, and the fantastic exposure you’ll receive, you’ll also have the chance to earn prizes:
$200 to the group who best captures the “Spirit of the Parade”
