The Farmers Santa Parade is celebrating its 86th birthday in 2019, promising some of the best celebrations yet.
New floats, giant inflatables, musicians, entertainment groups galore and Santa himself!
If you want to head in early to get the best spot, there will be pre-parade entertainment from 12pm.
Farmers Santa Parade is a proud supporter of Paralympics New Zealand, who will be out on the parade route ahead of the big event, so make sure to bring along some gold coins for their bucket collection.
The parade starts on Mayoral Drive before heading down Queen Street and ending on Customs St East.
To avoid the crowds, grab a spot-on Mayoral Drive; the view’s great and its way less busy than downtown. There might even be space to lay out your picnic blanket!
Whatever position you choose, make sure to keep safe and sit behind the blue honour line painted along the parade route.
