The point-to-point race follows the same route as the Santa Claus Parade and finishes at Maple Leaf Square.

The parade starts at 6:10 p.m. on Uptown Boulevard.

One thing that won't change with this year's parade is the Santa Watch Party, set for the municipal parking lot at Elgin and Larch streets from 2-5:30 p.m.

There are 15 entries in the 2017 parade that include some familiar faces like Santa Claus, The Grinch, The Disney Princesses and Harvey the HarbourCat. It is travelling along Bloor Street to University Avenue.

The Santa Claus Parade brought thousands of residents out to sit on curbs along Woolwich Street and throughout the downtown on Sunday afternoon to take in the spectacle.
