Hoodoo Adventures and the City of Penticton invite you to join them to celebrate the holiday season in a different, but equally festive, way! The two organizations are partnering to ensure the community continues the Santa Parade tradition by creating a stand still parade that will be free to the public, who will do all the driving this year, as they cruise through “Candy Cane Lane” on Sunday December 13th from 5 to 7pm. 

Festive displays will be set up all throughout the South Okanagan Event Centre parking lot. People must reserve a time online for their family/household to drive through the parking lot to take in all the lights and sights brought to you by local businesses (and Santa of course) who want to share the festive season with you!

The event is free to public and when registering your time, 1 registration = 1 vehicle

*Time slots are currently full.  Please watch this space as we are trying to open more.

With the recent changes in Province-wide Health Orders in effect until Dec. 7th, we want to keep everyone updated with our plans for Candy Cane Lane. As we want to give the event the best chance of moving forward, we are continuing to plan in the hopes that the restrictions on community events will be lifted and we will be given the all clear to move forward with this event on the 13th.

We will continue to follow all health orders and regulations as they are released. We will also do everything that we can to provide something very special for our community this holiday season. If you have registered for a time slot, we will send you an email to keep up to date on information as we have it. If you are considering being an exhibitor, please contact us for an application form. We will keep communication open and remain optimistic!
