Hello Vancouver Christmas Real Estate Watchers

  Well it is that time of year again that Santa gets out his naughty and nice list and visits Vancouver.  That is right it is the 7th Annual Rogers Santa Claus Parade and it is set to take over the streets of Vancouver on December 5th 2010 at 1:00pm.  The Parade route this year is the biggest yet with the Parade starting in the West End of Vancouver at the corner of West Georgia and Broughton heading east up West Georgia to Howe Street where it will run all the way down to Davie Street where it will end.   Make sure you arrive early as the early elf gets the best view of Santa but with such a long route you should have no problems enjoying all the events.  For all the full detail on this event please visit


Here are a few tips from the website to help make your Parade watching the best it can be:


What to Wear

Go for classic west coast style (fleece, waterproof jackets and comfortable waterproof footwear)

Dress in layers to keep warm.

Remember that umbrellas will unfortunately block the view, so please leave them at home.


Parade Etiquette

Secure your spot on Santa’s nice list! Follow these Rogers Santa Claus Parade protocols

Respect parade officials. Your safety and that of your family is paramount.

Obey all instructions to avoid Santa’s naughty list!

S marks the spot - someone else’s that is! Never move or occupy an empty chair. This curbside spot has been reserved.


Consider others

Wear your rain gear. Umbrellas block the view.

Be nice. Please allow those in wheelchairs front row, curb side viewing of the parade. Also, allow families with children to sit in front. We short people appreciate it too!

Say “excuse me” or “I’m sorry” if you bump or step on someone in the crowd.

Don’t smoke.

Property…a respectful reminder: climbing on or sitting atop anything belonging to Citytv, Canada Post, dumpster companies, this is a definite don’t!
