Sunday December 3rd, this year @ 12 noon

Enter into the Parade with your group or organisation.
2 x $500 cash prizes to be won for “Best Creative Effort”
and “Most Float Participants”.

The Nelson City Santa Parade is on again but this year it will be the
NEW & IMPROVED version of our favourite celebration! We’ll start at 12 noon at Trafalgar Park and end up in Morrison Square to meet Santa himself and enjoy all the fun of a real Christmas party. There will be entertainment, food and fun for young and old.  A chance to celebrate the Christmas spirit and connect with neighbours and friends.

We want you!
Come and join the fun or be involved and enter a float for your business or community organisation.

An improved Parade Route, going in the opposite direction!

The Parade will start from Trafalgar Park leading up Trafalgar St.
to Morrison Square where Santa will be and the Christmas Party kicks off at 1pm.

Be There…

Come and join the parade! Dress up in your brightest colours with family and friends. Lets all come together at Morrison Square after the Parade to enjoy each others costumes and company.

2 x $500 Prizes will be awarded for “Best Creativity” and “Most Participants” in a float.

Help Out…

The unsponsored floats need managing and manning. Each year the Santa Parade committee volunteers dedicate days of their time to tidy up the trust owned floats. Here is another opportunity to be involved in the Parade.
