The Douro-Dummer Santa Claus Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony

The Township of Douro-Dummer will host its annual Santa Claus Parade in the Village of Warsaw on Saturday, November 25th, 2023. This year the theme is “Peace on Earth”. The parade will depart from the Warsaw Public Works Depot (1402 County Road 4) at 5:00 p.m., and travel south on County Road 4, go right on Mill Street, left on Peterborough Street, left on Ford Street and left on South Street to return to the Township Office.

Following the parade, please join us at Millennium Park beside the Township Office (894 South Street) for hot chocolate, cookies, Christmas music, the tree lighting ceremony, and a visit with Santa.

Residents in the village are encouraged to have their Christmas lights up in an effort to light up the night together!

Once again, donations of mitts, scarves or toques are welcome and if you knit or crochet we are also accepting small lap blankets which will be donated to seniors to provide warmth and comfort. Please put any donations in plastic bags. Donations can be dropped off at the Township Office or brought to the tree lighting ceremony after the parade.

Tickets to win a Gingerbread House can be purchased for $2 each or 3 for $5 and proceeds will be split between St. Joseph Catholic School and Warsaw Public School to support their breakfast programs.

If your family, team or business would like to enter a float in the parade, please contact Martina Chait-Hartwig at 705-652-8392 x 210.
