Chance to see Santa
Puketapapa is throwing its second annual Santa Parade and Christmas Party tomorrow.
People are invited to assemble along the Mt Roskill shops on Dominion Rd for the parade.
It will depart from the Mt Roskill Shopping Centre car park, go down Jasper Ave and then loop back into the park.
Following the parade there will be a Christmas party in the Jasper Ave car park featuring musical performers, sausage sizzle, face painting, cake stalls and a bouncy castle.
There will also be opportunities to have a photo taken with Santa.
Puketapapa Local Board member Ella Kumar says it wants to make the Christmas parade ‘‘bigger and better’’ than its inaugural run last year and is encouraging everyone to join in.
‘‘It will be a great event to attend and see the diverse ethnic communities embracing each others’ cultures and celebrating Christmas,’’ she says.
The Puketapapa Santa Parade and Christmas Party takes place on December 8, 10.30am to 1pm.
In the event of poor weather it may be cancelled.
