The Santa Parade




Santa and Mrs. Claus usher in the holiday season with a visit to Downtown Scranton. The Santa Parade has been putting smiles on thousands of children's faces and injecting Christmas spirit into Lackawanna County for nearly 30 years. Catch a glimpse of all your North Pole favorites and get in the holiday spirit as the season draws near. With marching bands, twirlers, dancers, and Santa and Mrs. Claus, Charles Dickens himself would love The Santa Parade!


Enjoy all the parade's festivities and indulge in the local food and drinks. Stay the weekend and book your hotel room in one of our downtown Scranton hotels so that you're close to the action, or stay in one of our nearby hotels. Experience the magic of other holiday events during your stay in Lackawanna County!
