The blocks along the route of the Santa Parade route are each hosted by a company or organization creating a Block Party atmosphere for parade spectators. Each block features different types of entertainment including mascots, musicians and street hockey. Teams of Block Brigades are recruited from the hosts and help to ensure that everyone has a safe, friendly, fun, entertaining and memorable experience at the Winnipeg Santa Claus Parade.

Street Hockey on Portage Avenue!
JCI Winnipeg is pleased to once again sponsor a block party for the kids!

Look for the blue “JCI Winnipeg” hockey jerseys on site if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
