Twilight Christmas Parade in Petone

November 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Twilight Christmas Parade in Petone

The Jackson Street Programme (JSP) is bringing to you the tradition of twilight parades in Petone. The Petone Twilight Christmas Parade is on Friday, the 23rd of November starting at 7pm.

#ChristmasinPetone2018 we want see your photos and you go into win vouchers from Mexico Petone

The route is Jackson Street, from Buick Street to Petone Avenue. Floats include local schools, churches, sports clubs, cultural groups, bands plus amazing character floats. The JSP says “We have over 50 fantastic floats in this year’s parade, including many from our local community, plus Santa of course!”

Which then leads on to the switching on the lights and listening to chorus music while The JSP then opens Santa’s Grotto, where your Santa photos are FREE!  Santa resides in Petone up to four weeks of the year at 274b Jackson Street, Petone in the Old Jail (lock-up) behind the Historic Police Station.

The old jail is transformed from a mini-museum into an entertaining, interactive Christmas Grotto where children’s dreams are explored beyond their imaginations!

With the support from our  Sponsors and donations from our extended community The Jackson Street Programme are able to bring back the traditional values of Christmas, giving and celebration with family & friends.

Unfortunately, every year we face the same problem – funding.  While we are actively asking businesses to contribute and donate, we need your help to make our efforts go even further!

Please either message us or to DONATE, if you would like to help us bring a magical Christmas experience to the wider community. Your support is crucial to our efforts to bring Christmas to every family in wider Wellington regions, so that no child misses out on that special snapshot with Santa and experiencing the spirit of Christmas.
