Library book bike in the Santa parade

9633939On Sunday 13 December 2-3pm Santa Claus will ride into town for the Wellington City Council’s Capital Christmas Santa Parade. Starting on Lambton Quay and ending on Manners Street, onlookers will be treated to a Christmas spectacular with around 1000 entertainers participating in this year’s parade.

The Wellington City Libraries book bike will be pedalling its way through the city, along with a dance troop all the way from Beijing, the Minions, Alvin & the Chipmunks, Mr & Mrs Potato Head, Peter Rabbit, Spot the Dog and Santa! Our library elves will give away free books and balloons before and after the parade.

When Santa’s visit to Wellington is over, parade-goers can head up to Cuba Street to check out the street’s festive makeover and enjoy a gathering of street performers.

The Central Library is open 1:00-4:00pm on Sunday afternoon. Make sure you come in and grab more bargains for Christmas gifts at the book sale.
