THE SANTA PARADE IS COMING BACK THIS DECEMBER WITH A NEW LOOK AND A NEW NAME!

On the 18th of December 2022, thousands of people will come to the Canterbury Showgrounds to see the all-new Christchurch Christmas Show Parade, presented by the Christchurch Children’s Christmas Parade Trust.

A FUN NEW CHRISTMAS EVENT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

The Christchurch Christmas Show Parade at the Canterbury Showgrounds this December is an all-new reimagining of the traditional Santa Parade.

Come see Santa, and give you and your family a Christmas spirit boost with a fun and festive parade seven days before Christmas…

Each of our parade floats will be beautifully staged with actors, singers, dancers, music and some special effects. Laced together with bands, marching teams, and cultural & community groups.

Old favourites Cinderella, Superman, Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose and Lord Lego-Tron will make an appearance, along with new floats the Disney Princesses, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and many more. There will be popular characters like Batman, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pikachu and of course the grand appearance of the ultimate Christmas team – Santa & Mrs Claus.

There will be parking on site as well as some amusements, a Christmas market, food vendors and two large picnic areas for families to come and make a day of it.
