Thousands packed into downtown Vancouver this weekend to catch a glimpse of Santa Claus in the parade.
The annual event took place Sunday, December 1, where 20,000-30,000 people attended on Georgia and Howe streets.

The 1.8-kilometre parade route began at noon on Sunday, with Santa making his appearance about an hour later.
But first, there were plenty of other floats to see first, including 40 marching bands, choirs and community groups.
There was a float by the Vancouver Aquarium:
And a visit from the Grinch, who was caught before causing too much havoc.
