The Sacramento Santa Parade will feature marching bands, clowns, youth groups, horses, antique vehicles, and Santa Claus. An estimated 20,000 people are expected to show up.
The Santa Parade has a spirit of its own, embodied by the many wonderful parade entrants – from tuneful marching bands to high-stepping horses, colorful clowns to vintage vehicles, skillful twirlers to dazzling floats. The crowd of spectators greets the passing parade with enthusiastic approval. Their smiles and cheers are the perfect expression of the holidays; and a big part of the Santa Parade spirit.
Note: The parade circles the California State Capitol. Parade begins at 14th and N Streets alongside Capitol Park and will travel west on N Street to 9th Street.
