Cancelled! The Paihia Christmas Parade
December 3, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
It is with great disappointment that the Paihia Christmas Parade is cancelled this year. We have received clear signals that the organisers’ of large events need to be able to ensure that only double vaccinated persons are in attendance. To safely ensure this criteria, events need to be able to control entry. Given that this is not realistically possible for the Paihia Christmas Parade, the Executive made the difficult decision to cancel this event.
Theme – Board Games
The Paihia Christmas Parade is always spectacular with plenty of effort going into the floats creating a fabulous festive atmosphere.
The whole aim of the parade is just to have fun and celebrate our lovely town and Christmas.
Santa will be there with his famous lolly scramble.
All the shops, cafes and restaurants open. A great night out
You don’t have to adhere to the theme – if you just want to join in the parade with a Christmas float that is fine. Please no Santa’s on your float – there is only one Santa!
CARING FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT
Ways we can do this are to avoid balloons, tinsel, glitter and plastic of any kind, and to use recycled and repurposed items where you can. Many floats are made with cardboard and flora so we are in a good position already! It’s great to take a lead especially when so many of our local children are increasingly invested in caring for the environment and being awarded with enviro certifications. This can be challenging and we just want people to try their best. No-one will be criticised for what they do or not do.
Friday 3rd Dec, 5.30pm
Free to enter a float!
