2018 Farmers Santa Parade

The Farmers Santa Parade celebrated its 85th birthday in 2018, providing some of the best celebrations yet! Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy giant inflatables were joined by Thomas the Tank Engine, a new Beginning of Time Dinosaur float, new Nutcracker Float, the Lost Boys, entertainment groups galore and Santa himself!

The 2018 festivities took place on Sunday 2nd December, at 1pm! Check out our Parade Day Info and Tips here.

We had an amazing line-up featuring Paw Patrol themselves, excellent food, vendors, and entertainment for the whole family at Santa's Party - Aotea Square from 2:30pm-5:30pm!
