There are a number of ways you can be involved in the Farmers Santa Parade. Hospitality, Float, Character or Walking Set sponsorships as well as Pre-Parade and Santa’s Party sampling opportunities.
As the parade is free to the public, it takes a lot of fundraising to make it happen each year.
Please call Pam Glaser today on 09 377 6190 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org for a complete sponsorship pack. This will ensure that Christmas 2018 remains forever a special and wonderful memory for the children of Auckland for many years to come and that the fascination for and love of Santa lives on for our children.
“It was a memorable experience taking in the sheer spectacle of colour and flamboyance. The whole parade was MAGIC and this is what the spirit of Christmas encapsulates in the minds of children.”

“I love seeing all the happy faces in the dressing room when people are putting on their costumes, as well as in the crowd. There were some gorgeous children yesterday who were so delighted to see Santa arriving in his float. It’s being able to witness such special reactions like these that make it so special for me.”
