NBS Nelson Santa Parade

Sunday 10th December 2023

The NBS Nelson City Santa Parade will once again take to the streets of the Nelson CBD to celebrate the festive season.

With over 50 Floats the Nelson Santa Parade is the largest parade in the Top of the South. The NBS Nelson Santa Parade Trust has been busy all year creating several never seen floats and refreshing the older floats we have come to know and love.

Interested in having a float in the parade to advertise your Business, Community Group or Sports Team? We have a number of trailers available to community groups to create a float that represents them.

Float Registrations are open now email

We are also always looking for Volunteers to help with the running of the parade, if you are interested in helping then please email
