SANTA’S T.O. TRAV­ELS

The man in red and white has a long his­tory of ar­riv­ing in Toronto in style

Thornhill Post - - Holiday Gift Guide -

In years past, Santa Claus would of­ten keep chil­dren guess­ing as to how he would ar­rive in the city for his cel­e­bra­tory pa­rade. Rich­mond Hill saw its first Santa Claus Pa­rade in 1911, when a very cheer­ful Kris Kringle trav­elled down Yonge Street on a float with a lit­tle log house and chim­ney. In 1919, Santa came in an air­plane, land­ing in a field near Eglin­ton Av­enue and Yonge Street, where a large crowd had gath­ered to greet him. Be­tween 1930 and 1935, Santa rode in a char­iot, sil­ver fish and the ca­boose of a train. Fi­nally, in 1935, he rode on a sleigh drawn by eight rein­deer and has been con­tent with that float ever since.
