They will be accompanied by Styal Brass Marching Band and members of the Wilmslow and Alderley Edge Musical Theatre Company.
Starting at around 6.15pm, Santa's sleigh will depart from outside Sainsbury's and travel along the service road before crossing over to Grove Street and making its way down to Bank Square.
