FURTHER INFORMTION

THE MULTIMEDIA COMMUNICATIONS SANTA PARADE 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELLED BUT........

All is not lost as the Trust and MultiMedia Communications Ltd., are putting together a contingency event (SANTA'S MEGA GROTTO) that will run for 10 days during December so the children don’t miss out on some Christmas joy and entertainment. This event will be held in the Santa Parade's huge premises, the old School of Gymnastics building in QEII Park, main entrance off Travis Road, North New Brighton.

For all information regarding this event please go to the SANTA Parade & Santa's Mega Grotto Christchurch Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/www.christchurchsantaparade.nz.

Please refer to our Facebook page for updates with regard to ongoing COVID-19 issues and concerns that could affect SANTA’S MEGA GROTTO.

At this stage though I can assure you that our event will be able to proceed under Alert Level’s 1 and 2.

The mezzanine viewing floor in our building has license to hold 100 persons at a time so this will allow us to function easily under Alert Level 2. We would have to keep things moving and prevent any queuing.

So, should we be placed under Alert Level 2 leading up to our event you will be informed on Facebook, Website, MORE FM 92.1 and The Breeze 94.5FM what changes will be implemented. What I can tell you now is that under Alert Level 2 there will be no outside activities, performers and possibly food vendors that were going to present on the two weekends.

Under Alert Level 2 attendees will managed at point of entry, exit and through the entire building by dedicated Event staff who will ensure that everyone progresses at an acceptable rate and adheres to the required physical distancing.

QR codes will be available at point of entrance and will you have a sign in option for purposes of contact tracing which may be disclosed to the MOH should the need arise.

PARKING: Parking is available at the event just follow the signs. Please follow the instructions of our marshals if required.
ENTRY FEE: Gold Coin Donation
BUS STOP: On Travis Road about 50 metres from the event.
