The Rotary Club of North Muskoka has announced that, due to the ongoing COVID- 19 pandemic, the Huntsville Santa Claus Parade has been postponed to 2022.

The club says the decision comes after discussions with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and considerations related to pandemic measures, like event capacity limits and contact tracing requirements, plus the volatility of rules around public gatherings amid the continued public health crisis.

Instead the Santa’s Light Up the Night Contest and Tour will return for its second year.

The event welcomes Huntsville and area community members to sign up their houses or businesses by Monday, November 15, and then decorate their homes and shops with holiday lights by Friday, November 26. The public can then take a self-guided holiday lights tour of mapped locations across Huntsville, Novar, Port Sydney, and Utterson, until Friday, December 10.

Members of the public can cast their votes for Best House and Best Business online at Santa will announce the winners Friday, December 10, at 7:00 PM during a special online event.
