St Peter’s Anglican Church are hosting a Christmas fair with bric-a-brac, books, food and other activities in an annual fundraiser.
Celebrate the start of the festive season and bring the family along to the 2019 Onehunga Christmas Parade!
Beginning at 11:00am, the parade runs from the corner of Onehunga Mall and Arthur Street down to Princes Street before returning back along Onehunga Mall to Arthur Street.
The parade promises to be lots of fun with festive Christmas floats, lively bands and dancers plus a host of colourful characters including Santa and Mrs Claus.
There’ll also be free face painting and balloon twisting for the kids near St Peter’s Church plus the chance to meet and get a photo with Santa.
