The Tenors / Toronto Santa Claus Parade 2018
November 13th, 2018
The Tenors are pleased to be taking part this year in a beloved family tradition and annual broadcasting event, “The Original Santa Claus Parade” on Sunday, November 18 at 4:30 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.
The arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Claus is amplified like never before with a star-studded roster of live yuletide performances from top Canadian artists including Johnny Orlando, Serena Ryder, Tyler Shaw. This marks the ninth straight year that CTV is home to the exclusive broadcast of the longest-running children’s parade in the world, featuring 19 all-new floats, decked out with annual exclusive celebrity cameos and holiday greetings.
The 90-minute show’s broadcasting duo for the second year in a row will be Melissa Grelo and Marci Len from CTV’s The Social. Your Morning meteorologist and host Kelsey McEwen returns as the parade’s roving reporter, hanging out with celebrities in the crowd, connecting with parade goers, and bringing viewers at home an up-close look at the oncoming floats. And of course–a special visit from the one-and-only Santa Claus.
Continuing the CTV holiday tradition, some of the hottest celebrity names help build the holiday spirit by lending their voices to the parade broadcast, with yuletide greetings from actors Adam Devine (Pitch Perfect), model and television personality Hailey Baldwin, Toronto-born actor Eric McCormack (Will & Grace), international pop star Kelly Clarkson (The Voice), Canadian actor Jacob Tremblay (Room), Canadian music icon Jann Arden, and more.
In addition to on-air coverage, CTV’s parade-day essential website CTV.ca/Santa returns with all of the latest The Original Santa Claus Parade news, on-demand access post-broadcast, as well as exclusive video content.
An encore presentation of The Original Santa Claus Parade will air Saturday, December 7 at 4 p.m. ET/MT on CTV.
