Thanks everyone for joining us at the 85th Farmers Santa Parade! With over 3,500 participants and jam-packed with appearances from everyone’s favourite characters, we loved spreading the Christmas joy with excited families from around Auckland and beyond.
An absolute highlight was the return of giant inflatables Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Captain Hook, and Thomas the Tank Engine, with the familiar faces wowing crowds as the procession breezed down Queen Street. Excited onlookers were also treated to new, stand-out costumes and floats featuring The Beginning of Time, Pinkfong & Yellow Shark, The Nutcracker, Lost Boys, and a seven-metre-long T-rex.
As always, the big man himself, Santa, was greeted with cheers and waves as he closed the Parade.
Check out the highlights in our album below and see you all in 2019!
After the Parade, Santa’s Party saw everyone’s favourite canine rescue team Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol thrill the crowd with an epic live performance. The team was joined by The West City Concert Band, The Hits’ MC Flynn, Carter-Chan Dance Performance Centre, Neverland Studios, Wonderful Indonesia and the Mermaids who each brought their own funk and energy to the stage.
