December 4th @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The Paihia Christmas Parade is always spectacular with plenty of effort going into the floats creating a fabulous festive atmosphere.
The theme this year is “Under the Canopy!” – think bush, birds, rainforest, monkeys – there is so much under the canopy.
It is free to enter a float, and there are prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Community and Business Float. It is with great pleasure we are carrying on with the prize for the ‘The Most Sustainable’ Float. Sponsored by Focus Paihia, local business Little Giants & local community movements, Turning the Tide and The Tai Tokerau Timebank. Floats will be judged on both the proportion of repurposed, recycled and compostable materials and the strength of the environmental message to the public
The whole aim 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!
