Ho Ho Ho. Santa here. I’m making my way to Bala in person and virtually for your 2020 Holiday Celebration.

Instead of a parade, I’m taking a ride around Bala on a big red fire truck to wave and visit you safely from the roadway at your own driveway. That happens Saturday, November 14 from 1-2pm.

Then I can meet up with you via the Internet, Zooming into your own living room so you can visit with me.

The whole community of Muskoka Lakes can get involved, too, by taping short Holiday Messages that will be shared on social media and right here on the Muskoka Lakes Chamber website!

Here are all the Details to share with your Parents!

THE SANTA RIDE – Santa’s 44th Annual Visit to Bala – the first Santa Visit in Muskoka will feature just Santa on his own practicing safe social distancing coming down YOUR street in Bala.

Date and Time: Saturday, November 14, 1-2pm. Don’t come to us – Santa will come to you. Route details coming soon!


Thursday, December 2, 5-6pm and 6-7pm if needed. Starting in November, you’ll be able to sign up to visit with Santa at SantaVisits.ca – Stay tuned for more details soon.


Tape an up to 50 second message from your company or community group’s team and we’ll share on social media and put it ‘on parade’ on this website! Send your message to info@muskokalakeschamber.ca via the free WeTransfer.com application (it’s free and easy to use).
