parade & Fireworks


The night time parade and firework display are the cherry on top of the delicious cake that is Santa Day in Fenelon Falls. The parade starts at 5:00 PM at West & Lindsay St. (by Home Hardware) and crosses over the falls, continuing up Colborne St., ending at the ball diamonds.  Almost 2 km of sidewalk space (on either side of the street!) is available for frontline seats. Come a wee bit early to snag the perfect spot for you and your family to enjoy all the illuminated entertainment.

This Parade involves local businesses, volunteers and professional marching bands. The creative and amazing floats, dancers and music makers, along with tons of Santa Day extras, make the night time parade at Fenelon Falls’ Santa Day sure to gather everyone together. Immediately after Santa crosses the bridge and moves up the street you will see the most amazing fireworks light up the sky over the gorge down by the falls.
