Be in town at 2pm on Sunday 14 December to see the Santa Parade
Get into town by 2pm on Sunday
to see Santa Claus, his reindeer-ed
sleigh and all your favourite
characters prance and dance their
way through the central city. The
parade starts on the corner of
Lambton Quay and Ballance Street,
then travels along Lambton Quay,
Willis Street, Mercer Street and
Victoria Street, before ending
on Manners Street.
A number of roads in the central
city will be closed during the
day. It’ll also be very busy, so we
recommend taking public transport
From 3.15–4.30pm, Nick Tansley
will host Santa’s After Party in his
Pop-Up Carols Caravan in Frank
Kitts Park. There’ll be carol singing
and loads of entertainment to get
you in the Christmas spirit.
Also out and about in the city
will be singers, acrobats, jugglers,
musicians and dancers, all on a
mission to brighten your day.
The libraries are getting on
board with the 12 Storytimes of
Christmas. Kids can dress up or
wear their pyjamas and settle down
for Christmas stories, carols and
activities at their local library.
