Santa Claus is coming to town – to 299 Queen St. W., to be exact -- to kick off the three-month countdown to one of the world's largest parades.

The community is invited to join CTV, CP24 and CHUM FM on Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. to celebrate our three-year broadcast partnership with Toronto's Santa Claus Parade.

We will open up our parking lot for "Summer with Santa @ 299" presented by Allan Candy with lots of food and fun.

Viewers will get to check out a Santa Claus Parade float, listen to Santa's live band, grab some candy from the celebrity clowns, win prizes and more.

There will be something for everyone, and it's an event not to be missed.

The Toronto Santa Claus parade has made its way through the streets of downtown since 1905. This year, the parade will celebrate its 106th year.
