58th Annual Camarillo Christmas Parade: Santa Hits the Road December 12

2020 has been an unusual year for all of us. COVID-19 created the necessity for everyone to think outside the box in the way they do things; and so, this year’s Christmas Parade will look a bit different than it has in past years. At Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District and the City of Camarillo, we are particularly dedicated to bringing this treasured annual event back to the community as a beacon of hope in challenging times on Saturday, December 12, 2020, 8am-6pm 

Santa will be hitting the road in style on a big red fire engine. He will make his way slowly through a number of neighborhood streets in our Camarillo communities. We invite you to come out onto the sidewalk and wave to Santa as he passes by with his entourage to spread good cheer and holiday spirit. 

If you don’t happen to live along the parade route, that is OK; Santa’s route will pass by a number of parks where you can wait to catch sight of him. In these times of COVID-19 precaution, the gathering of crowds is not permissible, so we do ask everyone to practice social distancing and mask-wearing and follow all county health guidelines.

“The Camarillo Christmas Parade is a much-loved and highly anticipated tradition that has been carried on for 58 years and really brings the community together. If ever there was an extra special need for joy and holiday spirit – we feel it is now. COVID has put a great deal of stress on everyone for many months and it is our dearest wish to bring a good dose of joy to everyone’s hearts with a visit from Santa”, says Emily Raab, Marketing Specialist at Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District.
