Santa Claus is coming to down!

From Saturday 2 December, Santa will be visiting the Tauranga City Centre for the entire month of December before returning to the North Pole on Christmas eve.

We invite you and your children to come along and enjoy some festive fun in Santa’s grotto. Talk to Santa and his elf helper and enjoy the spirit of Christmas and hear all about the North pole!

Santa will need to take breaks at some points in the day so he can feed his reindeer, so if you pop in and he isn’t available rest assured he’s just around the corner and won’t be far away.

Santa and his elf look forward to seeing you!

Santa’s hours of residence through December are:

  • Saturdays up till Christmas: 2, 9, 16 and 23 December, 10am – 3pm
  • Monday – Friday in week before Christmas: 18-22 December, 10am -3pm
