Chance to see Santa

Central Leader - - NEWS -

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.
