Plans for the 2018 Trustpower Christmas Parade are underway and the team will share the details once they are finalised.
Free parking is available in the two car park buildings on parade day;
Off street parking is available.
There will be no onstreet parking available in Devonport Road from Second Avenue to the Strand and some side streets from 6am until after the roads have been reopened, post parade.
You could catch a bus into the city centre to watch the parade and be dropped off close to the action. You can relax and let someone else do the driving, enjoy the day in Downtown Tauranga and take a leisurely trip home again.

You could also bike into town, a fantastic opportunity to get some exercise.
The road closures will be confirmed once the 2018 parade plans have been finalised.
