From there, it moved along Main Street through Chinatown to the Ivanhoe Pub. Participants were later spotted further south along Main Street, heading towards the Olympic Village.

The Canadian Press captured several photos of Santas shocking onlookers, shooting pool and even napping in a bar as the day took its toll.

An estimated 317 events were to take place around the world on Saturday in cities such as New York, Tel Aviv and Adelaide, Australia, The Province reported.
