Santa Claus Parade & Pilgrimage 
Santa Claus is coming to town, the wonderful town of Lunenburg.  
The last Saturday of November sees homes and businesses dress up for the Annual Santa Parade as it makes its way through the street of Lunenburg.  
Over 40 floats beautifully, and imaginatively, decorated.

A delight for all ages, discover your inner child!  
The Lunenburg Old Fashioned Christmas Festival makes the holiday magical. 
The Parade is followed by the Pilgrimage from St. John’s Anglican Church to the Lunenburg Heritage Bandstand.  
See the live nativity with ‘Jasper’ the donkey.  
See the spectacular ‘Lighting of the Trees’ – well we are the Christmas tree capital of the world after all. 
There will be cider, treats and carols.  
The shops will be brimming with festival cheer and everyone is invited!
