Santa Claus Parade in Shelburne

Did you hear the big news? The highly anticipated and well loved Santa Claus Parade is returning to Shelburne!

That’s right, the Shelburne BIA is bringing back the Santa Claus Parade after a one-year hiatus. Due to the pandemic, it simply wasn’t safe enough to throw the parade, but now that restrictions have eased and vaccinations are rolling out, the parade is back in action!
