Santa Claus is Coming to Town – IV

A few more floats, marchers and bands before the man of the hour appears!


The parade route in the 1950s was about 10 kilometres through the centre of Toronto from Christie Street down to Yonge and Queen St where a special staircase led Santa right into Eaton’s Toyland.

That first colouring book was very detailed in design and looking at it now it would have been very difficult for some kids to “stay between the lines”. Following editions were less accurate depictions of the floats but easier to colour.
