Get Involved This Holiday Season

There’s lots of ways to get involved in your community this holiday season.


The Beaches Santa Claus Parade is coming up on Sunday, November 25th, and organizers are looking to recruit more businesses from the Beach Village to take part. The parade will travel west from Kingston Road & Victoria Park Ave, north on Walter Street and end at Community Centre 55. What better chance to get in front of your community. If you’d like to get involved, please see the registration form here.  Send the completed form to

The 11th Annual DeClute Light Up The Beach is quickly approaching. On Friday, November 30, at 7:00 p.m., over 2,000 neighbours and visitors will be gathering to join Santa Claus at the foot of Leuty Avenue. Attendees are encouraged to donate to Michael Garron Hospital Foundation. Funds raised will support the redevelopment of our mental health services and create better healing spaces for the most vulnerable members of our community.

This year, to help build on the success and community spirit generated by the event, The Michael Garron Hospital Foundation is asking for busineses in the Beach to create a special DeClute Light Up The Beach promotion over the light up launch event weekend (Friday, November 30 – Sunday, December 2).

Imagine an evening where visitors “make it a night out in the Beach” and have dinner, coffee and snacks, or a “spirited” beverage locally before or after the show!

If you are interested in participating, contact Siobhan Flanagan Dell from The Michael Garron Hospital Foundatio at or 416 469 6580 ext. 2460.
