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 his most trusted reindeer to help him and he has asked that the elves get his float ready early for the occasion, so watch out for them at the end of the parade.
Of course there will be a few surprises along the way with some giveaways and plenty of fun so join us at the Trustpower Christmas Parade and stay in Downtown Tauranga afterwards for family entertainment on the waterfront! This year's entertainment 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.
We're thrilled to announce that the Little Big Markets will be joining us on parade day too! They will be set up on the Tauranga Waterfront from 10am - 3pm.
For the best viewing spots of this years, parade be sure to check out the parade route at www.taurangachristmasparade.co.nz
