Join WHA at Sacramento's Santa Parade

Published: December 13, 2019

Western Health Advantage is excited to support the annual Santa Parade, being held Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 10 a.m. in the Downtown District near Capitol Park in Sacramento. The parade route goes around Capitol Park – N Street to NOW 9th , and up  L Street to 12th

The parade will feature marching bands, clowns, youth groups, horses, antique vehicles and Santa Claus. An estimated 20,000 people are expected to show up. Look for WHA’s elves distributing candy from the WHA van!

The parade is a hometown tradition for spectators and participants alike and we delight in sharing it with the community. We invite you to take part in this fantastic event that supports Sacramento area nonprofits and school performing arts programs.

The Santa Parade has a spirit of its own, embodied by the many wonderful parade entrants – from tuneful marching bands to high-stepping horses, fire trucks to vintage vehicles, skillful twirlers to dazzling floats. The crowd of spectators greets the passing parade with enthusiastic approval. Their smiles and cheers are the perfect expression of the holidays – and a big part of the Santa Parade spirit.

The Santa Parade was established in 1983 to create a signature holiday tradition in the heart of the city for all of Sacramento. It was an immediate success, drawing many thousands of visitors to downtown Sacramento each year.
