The Upper Hutt 2017 Santa Parade will take place on Sunday 3 December, commencing at 3pm.

Mark your calendars and start planning your float, as this year we are bring a distinctly ‘cool’ feel to the parade on Sunday 3 December, at 3.00 pm. We are excited to announce that this year’s theme for the Santa Parade is ‘A Winter Wonderland’.

Now is the time to start brainstorming your most creative Winter Wonderland float idea and put it to your school, club, or your boss! There is a $1,000 dollar prize for the float that best reflects A Winter Wonderland theme, and a $250 prize for the People’s Choice Award, voted for on social media in the week following the Santa Parade.

An invitation is extended to all businesses and community groups operating in Upper Hutt to join this community event and enter A Winter Wonderland float in the Santa Parade.

Online registrations are now open. Please click here to register.

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 parade for A Winter Wonderland at Expressions from 3:00 – 5:30 pm. Enter a wonderland filled with snow, live music, Christmas acts, holiday crafts and other Yuletide treats and have your photo taken with Santa—loads of activities for the whole family—all for free!
