Join us for our "Candyland" Christmas Parade on Saturday 4 December, as we celebrate the start of the 2021 festive season in Onehunga.
Beginning at 11:00am, the parade runs for approximately 45 minutes from the corner of Onehunga Mall and Arthur Street down to Princes Street before returning back along Onehunga Mall to Arthur Street.
This annual family event promises to be lots of fun with Candyland themed floats, lively bands and dancers plus a host of colourful characters including Santa Claus himself.
There’ll be free festive activities from 11:30am until 1:30pm including face painting and Christmas craft for the kids by the Onehunga Police Station and balloon twisting by St Peter's Church. Plus, there'll be the chance to meet Santa on his throne in the area by St Peter's Church after the parade finishes.
Mask-wearing to the Parade is encouraged if we are at Alert Level Two. We also encourage you to walk, cycle or catch public transport to the Parade.
This event is proudly sponsored by Onehunga Business Association, Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board and Dress-Smart with support from Clean Event, Onehunga Community Patrol and Onehunga Community Centre.
