    Ontario is known for its wonderful annual Winter Wonderland Parade – the largest Christmas parade in our region. It is held on the first Saturday of December. Weather conditions may be on the cold side of the spectrum, but the demeanor of parade attendees and participants are quite the opposite: warm and inviting. We invite you to watch the Winter Wonderland Parade and enjoy the mix of entries of floats, marching bands, dignitaries and Santa Claus himself!
