WATCH OUR 2021 HOLIDAY PARADE – Posted December 21, 2021 and running all year long here on SantaVisits.ca. Scroll down to learn about more holiday activities your Chamber, donors and volunteers helped make happen this year for children and families all around the lakes.

Christmas 2021

Ho Ho Ho. Santa here. I’m so excited to meet with you during this year’s 2021 Holiday Celebrations in Muskoka Lakes!

This year I Zoomed into your own living room and to Muskoka Lakes Preschool for interactive Story Times with Santa in November and December. Then it was so much fun for Mrs. Claus and I to have private Zoom visits together with you on Thursday, December 9.

Plus, the whole community of Muskoka Lakes got involved, too, by taping short Holiday Messages that you see in the video above and on the Muskoka Lakes YouTube Channel.

Below are all the details of what Santa brought to you in 2021.

Tape a 30-40 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 chamber@muskokalakeschamber.ca via the free WeTransfer.com application (it’s free and easy to use). We supply music. Please don’t add your own music as social media may not let your message play.

Thank you to the Harry Debes Family Foundation and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) for partnering with the Chamber on these new holiday celebrations in Muskoka Lakes. We couldn’t produce these events without their support.

THANK YOU SANTA for STORY TIME WITH SANTA ON NOVEMBER 20th AND FOR STORYTIME FOR MUSKOKA LAKES PRESCHOOL!

DOING EVEN MORE TO SPREAD CHEER FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Thanks to donations from the Harry Debes Family Foundation, which focuses on families, and help from local volunteers led by Sheila Overbeek of Overboard and Jan Turner of Turner Waterproofing Systems, former parade marshalls, our community is taking care of children across Muskoka Lakes.

How?

  • Gift Bags to all Elementary School Children in Muskoka Lakes with Santa delivering to Glen Orchard and Watt Public Schools.
  • Grocery Gift Certificates to High School Students living in Muskoka Lakes via Gravenhurst High School and Bracebridge and Muskoka Lakes Secondary School.

No child should go hungry. Every child should feel special.

Thank you to our volunteers and donors for making these gifts possible.
