Trenton, ON, as we kick off the holiday season in style.

On November 26th, 2023, the magic starts at 4:30 PM at Centennial Park. Families from all over Quinte West will gather along the route, eagerly awaiting the twinkling lights and festive floats. The air will be filled with anticipation as children clutch their wish lists, hoping to catch a glimpse of the jolly old man himself, Santa Claus.

The Food Drive

Join us in giving back to the community by participating in the food drive during the parade. This year, we've partnered with local food banks to make the holiday season brighter for those who may be facing difficult times. As you watch the parade, consider bringing non-perishable food items to contribute to our cause. Your generosity can help put a festive meal on the tables of families in need.

2. Celebrating the Spirit of Giving

A Community Coming Together

The Santa Claus Parade is not just a spectator event; it's a moment for everyone in Quinte West to unite and celebrate the joy of the season. Families, friends, and neighbors come together, sharing laughter and stories as they line the streets. It's a chance to reconnect with old friends and make new ones, all while basking in the glow of twinkling lights and the warmth of shared experiences.

Quinte West's Quintessential Tradition

This parade has been a part of our community's history, dating back generations. It's a tradition that binds us together, connecting us. This year is the 70th Anniversary of the Trenton Santa Claus Parade. So, it’s going to be more memorable than ever!

3. Making a Difference

By participating in the food drive, we can support local families in need and make a tangible impact on our community. The simple act of donating a can of soup or a box of cereal can go a long way in ensuring that no one in Quinte West goes to bed hungry during the holiday season. It's a small gesture that collectively makes a significant difference.

4. Our Commitment to Community

We're not just a contracting company; we're members of this community who believe in giving back. At Parkhurst General Contracting INC., we understand the importance of community support. Our team lives and works in Quinte West, and we believe that giving back is an integral part of being a responsible corporate citizen. We're committed to using our resources to create positive change in the community that has given us so much.

5. Santa Claus Parade and Beyond

Our involvement in the parade is just a tiny part of our efforts to support and uplift Quinte West. Throughout the year, we actively participate in local events, charity drives, and community initiatives. Whether it's renovating a family's home, building a new structure, or sponsoring local youth sports teams, we're here to make a lasting impact. We believe that a strong community is the foundation for a prosperous and harmonious future.

The Santa Claus Parade is more than a procession of floats; it's a symbol of community, giving, and connection. It's a chance for all of us to come together, celebrate our roots, and make a real impact on the Quinte West community.
