PETROLIA CHRISTMAS PARADE THEME ANNOUNCED, CHILI COOK OFF AND CHRISTMAS MARKET TO RETURN THIS DECEMBER!
Petrolia – The Town of Petrolia Parks and Recreation Committee is pleased to host the Annual Santa Claus Parade on December 3, 2022, at 2:00 p.m., downtown Petrolia. A “Christmas Under the Sea” theme is planned for this year.
In 2019, we got a glimpse in to what Christmas might look like in outer space, so for a bit of fun for 2022, the committee thought that “…it would be a fun way to bring a lot of colour and excitement to the parade.”
The Committee is now accepting applications for floats at Town Hall in Petrolia or on the Town website. The Annual Petrolia Santa Claus Parade is December 3, at 2:00 p.m. through downtown Petrolia. For more information or to print a copy of the entry form please visit www.town.petrolia.on.ca. Registrants are encouraged to “…really have fun with this one! We’re looking for bright colours, imagination and of course, Christmas!” said Dave Menzies, Director of Community Services.

Christmas in the Park returns on Friday, December 2, 2022, and the friendly chili cook-off competition will return after the two-year interruption. The Lambton Central Petrolia Optimist Club will have their Angel Tree, and the community Christmas trees will return so that residents can add their non-returnable ornaments to them. The lighting of the lights will take place at 6:00 p.m. and the free wagon rides will continue until 8:00 p.m. More information about Christmas in the Park will be available soon.
Following a resounding success in 2021, the Petrolia Christmas Market will also return to the Petrolia Farmers’ Market Pavilion at 396 Fletcher Street (behind the library). This new addition to the annual celebrations will take place on Saturday, December 3, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Vendors are currently being accepted by contacting Thera at email@example.com.
