The Santa Claus Parade began in the early 1900s and was originally owned and managed by Eaton's. In the early 1970s, the Winnipeg Jaycees were asked to continue the tradition, and they ran the Santa Claus Parade exclusively every year until 2004.

The 2010 Parade marks the 101 anniversary of the Santa Claus Parade.

The Winnipeg Jaycees and Manitoba Hydro are now co-title sponsors of the annual Santa Claus Parade.

The Power Smart/Winnipeg Jaycees Santa Claus Parade is a magical spectacle of light and sound as more than 70 floats wind their way through downtown Winnipeg.
