Auckland’s Farmers Santa Parade 2017

It’s Christmas Time in the city!

Auckland’s Farmers Santa Parade gave us an early yuletide cheer last weekend as dozens of colorful floats strut around the streets of Auckland CBD. Thousands of people eagerly waited as an amazing line-up of different characters brought cheer, dancing, street acts and lots of smiles to everyone. It was great to witness all different ages and culture coming together to create such a wonderful affair. Even fellow Filipinos participated by bringing our own Dinagyang Festival into the show.

Apparently, this is an annual event and it’s on its 84th this year. How awesome is that!

Here are some photos taken during the parade. It’d be our first Christmas here in Auckland and I’m excited to see more of how this beautiful city celebrates the festive season.
