The Santa Clara Parade of Champions has always been a celebration of people, non-profits, businesses, organizations, and traditions; bridging communities in Santa Clara and beyond for over 50 years.
For 2020, we hosted a VIRTUAL Parade to honor our community and front line heroes and celebrate the amazing community spirit that has kept us strong and united through this Pandemic. The parade committee organized a celebration online on Saturday, October 10 and launched it right here on our website and social media platforms.
Thank you for celebrating with us! We are grateful for the over 120 videos submitted to be in the 2020 Virtual Parade of Champions. Your fun short videos of your organization performing, and heartfelt community messages thanking the community and front lines heroes were appreciated. You made it special for all of us in Santa Clara.
You made this the best first ever Virtual Santa Clara Parade of Champions memorable.
2020 Santa Clara
Yard Decorating Contest
2020 was for sure a unique year — the inability to gather as we once could forced us to find new and creative ways to stay connected. We thought a decorated front porch, yard or even a window would be a fun way to share your feelings about our 2020 Heroes! We are grateful to our community heroes and front lines for keeping us safe, healthy and sane during COVID-19 even putting their lives on the line for us. This has been a year we will look back on with Gratitude for years to come to our Heroes who
led us through one of the most challenging years in recent history.
Thanks to all who participated! Winners were contacted and were given Prize Baskets and Certificates accordingly after we tallied the votes from our Panel of Judges.

Online People's Choice
The Public decided on the winner based only on the most votes submitted online
Thank you community for your participation in this fun and friendly contest. It really does take a village. The contest was open to all in the community to participate. Creativity had nothing to do with it--it was all about being social. We only asked you to choose your hero display accordingly, avoid politics and controversary. Our panel of judges were not involved in the selection of the People's Choice winner that’s why it’s called People’s Choice.
Entry #16 - National Fire Firefighters Prevention theme in District 5
Grateful for the community spirit and powerful positive messages and love shown to our 2020 community and front line heroes. We hope next year we will be able to gather again in person to watch a real parade. Until then Stay Safe and Healthy Santa Clara!
