Santa Parade

A Very Welly Christmas 2017 will carry on the Santa Parade's tradition with a bespoke parade forming part of the two-day festivities. 

History of the parade

The Wellington Santa Parade has been going since 1949. Although the parade only went around the Basin Reserve then, thousands of parents and children lined the footpaths to witness the Capital's first real Christmas street spectacle.
