Tonight, Camden welcomes Santa Claus to town with a holiday parade that concludes with a Winter Wonderland celebration at the Camden Children's Garden.
Tonight will be an evening of magic for children and their families in the heart of Camden, for Santa Claus is coming to town!
The fourth annual Camden Holiday Parade steps off at 6:30 tonight from Broadway and Market Street and works its way through downtown Camden before concluding in front of the Camden Children's Garden.

There will also be meet-and-greets with Santa and other characters, face painting, giveaways, live entertainment, and more.
The parade, a new Camden tradition, is sponsored by the District Council Collaborative Board, Camden's public safety and quality of life organization.
