Manurewa Santa Parade

The Manurewa Santa Parade is a highlight in the community calendar.  Watch floats and groups parade down Great South Road in what is the biggest Santa Parade in Auckland outside of Queen Street.

The Manurewa Christmas Festival also includes the Family Fun Day which takes place in the Manurewa Library Carpark, off Newhook Lane directly after the parade.

The Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust co-ordinated the initiative on 10 June 2017, and more than 170 people turned out to help spruce up the Manurewa Town Centre.  Volunteers painted shop walls, bollards and rubbish bins, weeded, planted and mulched gardens, tidied service lanes and picked up litter – a 15 cubic metre skip bin with rubbish and debris was collected.
