The 2022 Sooke Santa Parade on Sunday December 4 will be a big part of holiday season action in the growing community of Sooke.

Organized by the Sooke Lions and the District of Sooke, the event usually draws a large crowd for the outdoor night time fun. The Sooke Lions also acknowledge help from Sooke District Lioness Lions & Sooke Harbourside Lions.

The fun begins at Evergreen Mall at 4 pm with complimentary hot chocolate, hot dogs and cookies.
