We hope to see you at this year's Parade on
Saturday 1st December 2018!


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 fill his presents sack early for the occasion, so watch out for them at the end of the parade. We can't wait for you to meet Drogon this year, this 6 metre long, 3 metre high dragon is set to wow you all in the parade, but don't get too close, he'll growl!

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 the family entertainment.


Wondering what happens in the event of rain on Saturday?

We acknowledge that there is rain in the forecast for Saturday, however we are still going ahead with the parade! If in the unfortunate case of heavy rain or strong winds, we will let you all know by 9am on Saturday if there is a need to cancel.

See you in Downtown Tauranga on Saturday for another fantastic Trustpower Christmas Parade!
