Since 1971, the Santa Claus Parade has been something to look forward to every year in Cornwall.
Since 2000, the parade is the responsibility of the Service Club Council, who assumes finding the sponsorship and the planning of all activities of the Santa Claus Parade. Every Year, a committee who operates under the direct supervision of the Council is formed to operate this activity. This committee works together to make sure that Cornwall has a memorable parade every year ensuring that all children, young and old, have the opportunity to enjoy Santa’s visit.
The Parade is funded solely by the generous donations of Sponsors and Donors and contrary to popular belief, does not receive any public funding. That is why your help is so important in keeping this tradition alive. No donation is too small.
