Christmas on the Gold Coast will never be the same again. In the biggest event of its type ever mounted in Australia, Santa Claus will be coming to town the 6th of December 2020, in front of hundreds of thousands of excited families.
From the busy streets of Manhattan to the bustling beachfront of Surfers Paradise, an event inspired by New York’s famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is coming!
Get ready to ring in the festive season with a spectacular parade of vibrant floats up to 8 metres long and 5 metres high with dance troupes, bands, marchers, cartoon characters, street performers, celebrities, community groups, sports teams, and of course… Santa Claus!
The Gold Coast Christmas Parade will include up to 18 colourful floats, dancers, marching bands, street performers, celebrities, and community groups. It will stretch 2.6kms along the beachfront Esplanade from Narrowneck to Northcliffe Terrace.
Join the 200,000 people expected to line the streets, plus millions more on television, to enjoy the magic of Christmas, with the one of the biggest summertime Christmas parades in the world!
