HAPPY HOLIDAYS Winter in Belleville brings with it two of the most anticipated annual events. Christmas at the Pier is the lighting of the Christmas Light Display at Jane Forrester Park and is the unofficial kick off to the Holiday Season. Join us on Friday, November 16 as we light up the waterfront with holiday spirit. Following that is the annual Santa Claus Parade, as Santa travels through the streets of Belleville and brings 70+ colourful floats, marching bands, elves, music, and family fun for all.
