Santa Claus is coming! Parades in Waterloo region

If you love a parade, there will be plenty of opportunities to watch one over the next few weeks.

There will be a total of 10 Santa Claus parades throughout Waterloo Region between now and Christmas.

The dates and times almost make it possible to attend every one as they run day and night on varying days over the course of four weekends.

The only day that might throw a monkey wrench into going 10 for 10 would be Dec. 1, as there are three parades starting over a four-hour stretch.

What follows is a list of parades throughout the Waterloo region:
