Majesta Greater Moncton 2014 Santa Claus Parade

A virtual tour consisting of four inter-linked interactive 360° images with ambient sounds



From our Archives: Our 360 gallery pages for the 2012 and 2011 Santa Claus Parades.


 

 

The largest Santa Claus Parade in Atlantic Canada!

Approximately 100,000 people lined the streets from the corner of Main and Cameron Streets in Moncton, all the way to the corner of Champlain and Paul Streets in Dieppe. The theme for the 2014 parade was "Lights, Music, Christmas!". The best overall float of the parade was "Elmwood, Dieppe, Magnetic Hill Home Hardware". Visit the parade's website for the complete list of winners; see the link on this page.

This year, the Santa Claus Parade started at 5:00 p.m., an hour earlier than in previous years. The last float, Santa on his sled with the reindeers, passed in front of Moncton City Hall and RogersTV's big lights around 7:05 p.m. The parade consisted of 100 floats, marching bands, majorettes, etc. Letter carriers were picking up letters to Santa Claus and volunteers were accepting food donations for the Tim Horton's Christmas Food Drive. Over 4,900 pounds (2 200 kg) of food was collected for the food bank!

Over 100 volunteers and many, many businesses and organisations from the Grater Moncton area help make the parade a success every year. The parade has grown over the past 40 years to become the largest in Atlantic Canada. Even today, it is still organized by a committee of volunteers.

Technical Notes

The 360° images featured on this page were taken at different times, and each image is composed of several photos taken at different times. Each image is therefore a photo-montage that might slightly distort space-time reality when people or objects change position while the photos are captured. In other words, floats may appear out-of-sequence and people may appear more than once in the same scene! This is usually not done intentionally.
