Did you hear? Christmas Carnival is coming to town!

Join us at Te Rauparaha Park on Saturday 8 December from 2 - 5pm for free festive fun. It's on rain or shine, and there'll be something for the whole whānau.

It’s a carnival so the tamariki will be kept busy with all things circus including arts and crafts, face painting by BodyFX and learning tricks of the trade from the pros Highly Flammable. They can join in cool science experiments with Sarah the Scientist, be adventurous in the giant game area, enjoy some bouncy fun, and so much more!

The littlies will have their own special play area where they can build, bounce and dive!

Jugglers, balloon animal artists, stilt walkers, circus performers, and Pop Up Carols will keep everyone entertained until Santa arrives at 2.30pm.

Want to cool off in the pool? Arena Aquatics at the Te Rauparaha Arena will have fun pool activities for all ages for a discounted entry free.

All the festive fun will make you hungry, so pick up something nutritious and delicious from one of our many food trucks. And don't forget your drink bottles! Our water hydration station will ensure you won't go thirsty.

So, grab your sunhats and set out on your bike, scooter, own two feet, catch a bus or train or take advantage of our free weekend parking (

However you get there we'll see you at Te Rauparaha Park!
