Come and enjoy the biggest little Christmas Parade in Auckland! The iconic Browns Bay parade attracts 10,000+ visitors every year and is recognised for being a stunning family event that marks the start of the Festive Season on Auckland’s North Shore.
Bring your family and friends to Browns Bay for a day trip. Relax on the beach; ice cream in the sun; coffee or lunch at one of the many fabulous cafes and restaurants in town. Stroll through the all-day Christmas craft market in Phoenix Plaza and the beachfront where you’ll find Christmas gift ideas galore. Live entertainment in the Plaza will keep you toe tapping until it’s time to find your prime position along the parade route. The Parade starts from Glen Road, turns into Bute Road, then Clyde Road (main street), Anzac Road, and finishes back at Glen Road. See an amazing procession of festive floats, bands, dancers, vehicles, magicians, as well as many church, school and community groups in amazing costumes. And lots, lots more.
