Lock the Santa Parade into your calendar!

It's a tradition to head along to the local Santa Parade and this year is bigger than ever...

Join us on Sunday December 4th from 2pm on Riccarton Road for fun for the whole family.

Started by Sir James Hay in 1947 the Santa Parade is still taking the Christmas spirit out into the streets of Christchurch after 69 years.

The Parade now features 130 spectacular floats, fantasy costumes and creations representing the diverse cultural society Christchurch now heralds.

110,000 plus spectators, 2,500 participants, 500 volunteers and an hour and a half of “free” fun, excitement and entertainment! A TRUE COMMUNITY EVENT!

Be listening to 94.5FM for full Santa Parade details - plus we'll keep you posted right here too!
