2018 Trustpower Christmas Parade

Join us for the Trustpower Christmas Parade, the parade that heralds the start of the Christmas season, featuring colourful community floats, lively bands, marching teams, acrobatic groups and colourful characters. Santa will join us and has invited many of his friends along too. He has chosen two of his most trusted reindeer to help him and he has asked that the elves get his presents ready early for the occasion, so watch out for him at the end of the parade.

Of course there will be a few surprises along the way....including larger than life characters. We don't want to give too much away, but you won't want to miss a particular fire breathing creature this year, or the new Downtown Tauranga float! There will be giveaways, music, dance and plenty of fun at the 2018 Trustpower Christmas Parade.

Make sure you stay in town afterwards for family entertainment on the waterfront too. This year will be bigger and better than ever with the addition of CCS Disability Action putting on their annual show from 12pm - 3pm. Celebrate diversity and be entertained through music, dance, kapa haka and more.
