Description

CastleCourt's much-loved Christmas parade returns to Belfast city centre on Saturday 17 November.

Setting off from Writer’s Square (opposite St Anne's Cathedral) at 12 noon, Santa will lead this year’s exciting line-up in his brand new train and sleigh, joined by Mrs Claus and Rudolph the Reindeer. The trio will lead the magical parade past St Anne’s Cathedral along Donegal Street, arriving at Royal Avenue at CastleCourt at 12.30pm.
Families are invited to follow the parade, alongside an amazing line up of performers including glistening snowmen, sparkling Christmas trees, inflatable characters and the cast of Belfast Operatic’s Elf The Musical, which will give spectators an exclusive preview performance of their new Christmas production. See a dazzling array of stilt-walking characters, juggling elf, ice-queen, grinch and Mrs Christmas at the entrance to CastleCourt.
Santa will take up residence in his grotto at CastleCourt at 1pm, and delight thousands of visiting children and their families until 24 December.
