Lights, camera, action! It’s a Merry Movie Christmas in Upper Hutt

The Upper Hutt 2016 Santa Parade will take place on Sunday 4 December, commencing at 3pm.

Applications are now open for the ever-popular Upper Hutt 2016 Santa Parade. This year our theme is ‘A Merry Movie Christmas’ with plenty of opportunities to get creative as you make this theme your own.

Register your float today!

An invitation is extended to all businesses and community groups operating in Upper Hutt to join this community event and enter a ‘Merry Movie Christmas’ float in the Santa Parade. Crowds of over 5,000 flocked to Main Street last year to enjoy the much-loved event, making this an excellent opportunity to celebrate with your community. Your float could be themed as a classic Christmas film, or a modern interpretation of how a non-Christmas movie might celebrate the occasion—the opportunities are endless!

There is a $1,000 dollar prize for the float that best reflects the theme of a Merry Movie Christmas, and a $250 prize for People’s Choice Award, voted for on social media in the week following the parade.

Now is the time to brainstorm your best Merry Movie Christmas float idea and put it to your school, club or boss! Registrations will close on Sunday 20 November.

This year we will once again be entertained and delighted with the Expressions Whirinaki Arts and Entertainment Centre post-parade event. Join Santa after the Upper Hutt Santa Parade for A Hollywood Christmas at Expressions from 3-6pm. Enter a silverscreen inspired world filled with all the fun of the movies, including live music, Christmas acts, crafts and other yuletide treats and have your photo taken holding your Oscar with Santa.

The Upper Hutt Santa Parade is organised by Upper Hutt City Council, and is promoted by the Upper Hutt Leader.
