Santa is getting everything together for his ride on Christmas Eve.

But before that, he will be in Hannibal for the "It's a Wonderful World of Disney" Christmas Parade on December 6 beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Hannibal Jaycees, in conjunction with Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department and Douglas Community Center look forward each year to putting a smile on a child in need for the holidays. Every year, the Jaycees hold their annual parade to collect toys, mittens, hats, gloves and more for those in need.

If you would like to donate a new unwrapped toy, Santa will be meeting and greeting all the way down Broadway and will collect your donations.

If you would like to be in the parade, bring a new unwrapped toy to be collected the day of the parade. You must check in at the top of the Save-A-Lot parking lot. Check in time is at 5:30.
