Mr. and Mrs. Claus, reindeer and a whole lot more delighted large crowds Saturday along Wyandotte Street East, where fans enjoyed many floats while waiting for the main attraction as part of the 53rd annual Windsor Santa Claus Parade, presented by the Wyandotte Town Centre BIA.

Last year, due to COVID-19, a drive-thru format was held at St. Clair College.

New this year, the Windsor Parade Corporation unveiled its Island of Misfit Toys float featuring some classic characters like Charlie in the Box. The float is dedicated to longtime volunteer Clayton Massender, who died last year.

Amherstburg hosted Santa Claus last week, and St. Nick enthusiasts can catch the Essex BIA parade next week.
