Volunteer for the Manitoba Hydro Santa Claus Parade and help make it a magical experience for everyone!

The Manitoba Hydro Santa Claus Parade is one of the most beloved and anticipated events of the year in Winnipeg. It is a festive celebration that brings joy and excitement to thousands of people who watch the parade live or on TV. But did you know that the parade would not be possible without the help of hundreds of volunteers?

Volunteering for the parade is a great way to give back to the community, meet new people, and have fun. Whether you want to help with the float construction, parade marshalling, crowd control, or donation collection, there is a role for everyone. You can also join the parade as a walker, dancer, or mascot.
