Also, know as holiday parade of lights it takes place around November 18 each year. The days are already very short and it gets dark early which is perfect for this wonderful event. The parade first follows Barrington street, then Spring Garden road and University avenue. It ends by the hospital for sick kids so that they can enjoy the parade from the windows.

Parking will be free because parade usually is scheduled for Saturday. Some time will be needed to walk to where parade will be and find a spot. Dress warm as November night can be cold. And most importantly – have fun!
