Eaton’s held its first Christmas parade in Montreal, with 1,100 children participating. The parade route ran from Saint Joseph Boulevard to the store on Saint Catherine Street. It became an annual event and was held on the third Saturday of November until 1968. If you’ve been to Montreal in November, you’ll know the event also doubled as cold-weather survival training.
