After the Farmers Santa Parade finished its incredible run through Auckland’s CBD all Parade-goers were in for a special treat as the international sensation that is Peppa Pig took the stage in Aotea Square. This show was a part of an amazing line-up of activities that kept the fun times rolling at Santa’s Party from 2.30pm, Sunday 26 November 2017.

Peppa Pig and friends topped off what was potentially the best Farmers Santa Parade ever with a FREE outdoor performance of the popular live show Jump in Muddy Puddles.  No stranger to parents and kids alike, the world-famous Peppa Pig charmed audiences as she played games and enjoyed a day out to celebrate the Christmas Party of the season.

There were so many fun reasons to stay in town for the Farmers Santa Parade 2017, with a programme that saw Peppa Pig joined by MC Flynny from The Hits, Circus Entertainment Duo 3-Ring Riot, singer-songwriter Ciaran McMeeken, The West City Concert Band and of course the one and only Santa Claus.

Santa’s Party offered a full line up of great family entertainment along with giveaways, rides, refreshments and one last chance to see Santa before he climbed down the chimney on Christmas Eve.

The Pre-Parade was also a chance for some more acts to perform and parade along Queen Street that we just couldn’t fit into our main Parade.

Pre-Parade started from 12pm – 1pm, so it was a good idea to have your viewing spots by this time!
