Cairngorm Reindeer take part in the parade in Middlesbrough Centre
Middlesbrough's festive Reindeer Parade and Community Carnival will take place on Sunday 21 November at 1pm.
This year the parade and carnival is based on the theme of the Nutcracker ballet, a seasonal favourite.
Hundreds of school children in fancy dress will parade through the streets followed by Santa on his sleigh, pulled by real Cairngorm reindeer.
After the parade the reindeer will be with their handlers in Captain Cook Square for the public to meet.
"Every year the Reindeer Parade and Community Carnival is a wonderful spectacle and this year promises to be no different," said Judith Croft, Middlesbrough Council's Events Manager.
"It's such a lovely event to attend and be a part of. It really gets you feeling like the Christmas season has started."
The parade starts outside the Town Hall on Albert Road at 1pm and goes along Corporation Road, through the Hillstreet Centre, Dundas Mews, Linthorpe Road, Grange Road and finishes in Centre Square.
Roads close at 12.45pm so arrive early to avoid delays.
