For more than three decades, Santa has spent the Sunday evening before Christmas on a sleigh going through Transcona. This year Sunday December 18th, he will ride again, so mark your calendars. The Transcona Optimist Club puts the event on each year.

Optimist Members along with Vickar Chevrolet spend days prepping, mapping and decorating Santa’s sleigh for when he arrives.

The article continues below

A lot of people remember way back when they were kids that the Santa sleigh would go up and down the streets of Transcona.” Now that our amazing community has grown so much, our members work hard mapping a route every year. Repeatedly doing dry runs to reach across Transcona and mapping a route to hit as many streets they can in one evening. It is impossible for Santa’s sleigh to do all areas. They change the route year to year so others areas experience Santa’s visit!

We are on Facebook to give everyone a heads up where he will be, so that you may get out to meet him, he moves fast so follow the map route that will be posted on our page, to see when he visits your area.

Weather, sleigh issues and time are just a few challenges to this event…. so be patient, we will do our best.

We hope we add to this magical time of the year. We look forward to the smiles, waves and cheers from young and old every year. Please stay safe and we ask that you don’t plug the intersections.

From our hearts to your home, See you December 18th
Merry Christmas everyone!
Transcona Optimists Club
