Be at Waitangi Park on Saturday 16 December for Santa’s arrival, to meet Santa, and for a fun range of Christmas activities.
Santa will arrive in his special sleigh, starting at 11am on Great Harbour Way/Te Aranui o Pōneke near the Clyde Quay Wharf Marina, and heading towards Herd Street. He will travel a short distance down Herd Street, then turn right into Waitangi Park, and move along the length of the wide pathway that runs along the Waitangi Park side next to the Chaffers Dock building, before dismounting to meet the crowd.
Meet Santa in his grotto between 11.30am and 5pm. Santa will take breaks during this time. Enjoy Christmas activities between 11am and 5pm, including ice skating, the snow dome, foam pit, hip hop dance, choirs, brass bands, face painting, stilt walkers, a craft tent, caricatures, and take a selfie in Santa’s sleigh. A variety of food trucks will also be on site.
