Three major events peppered with excitement, fun, and family entertainment.
Saturday 1st December 9am to 4.30pm

Hellers Kaiapoi Carnival

Located on the East side of Williams Street between Hilton Street and Raven Quay.

The Carnival will be providing entertainment on the Hazeldine Construction Community Stage and fun activities within the Misco Joinery Free Family Fun Zone.  Added to this is the Kaiapoi Club Chill Out Zone, the Kaiapoi Toyota Show and Shine, the Kaiapoi ITM Photobooth, favourite commercial and local vendors, with buskers thrown in for good measure.

Mix all of these exciting ingredients together, and you have a cracker recipe for a highly enjoyable festive carnival.

KPA Street Market

To be held along Williams Street.

The Street Market will be full of local community groups and businesses giving Kaiapoi locals and visitors the opportunity to see what they’re about. They will be showcasing their group information, products, wares, and if we’re lucky, providing some good old- fashioned home baking for sale. Street entertainment will also be in evidence.

We can help these local groups and businesses support us, by supporting them.

McDonalds Kaiapoi Santa Parade

Route will run from West to East along Raven Quay, South along Williams Street, before turning East, to end on Hilton Street.

As well as the traditional floats, cars and groups, this year there are added options for float entries with the introduction of Flolley's, using supermarket trolley’s, and Flooters, using mobility scooters.  A real opportunity to involve the whole community.

Always fun for all, and of course, who could forget the Big Man himself??  SANTA
