2020 Mayoral Christmas Parade & Family Evening

Christmas Parade

We are thrilled to bring the community some Christmas cheer by presenting the 2020 Mayoral Christmas Parade and Family Evening.

The evening will follow a very similar format to previous years, with the street parade commencing at the Apex Park and ending at the Lions Park. There will be food and drink stalls, entertainment, Lobster Trail and a spectacular fireworks display to conclude the festivities. The event will be held on Friday, 11 December 2020, commencing at 6.30pm.

You can get involved in the parade in many different ways: -

Participating in the Lobster Trail:

The ever popular Lobster Trail will involve 200 Lobster Trail bags, which will be available for children to purchase. The bag will contain a map that leads the participants through the Lions Park to collect a small gift from each station. These gifts could be items donated by your suppliers, vouchers for your business to be redeemed at a later date, or any other small item that a child would be happy to receive. The Lobster Trail is a highlight of the evening for many and the funds raised assist in the running of the Christmas Parade.

Decorating your business, shopfront or home:

Christmas lights and decorations always help to generate vibrancy and Christmas cheer. We would like to encourage as many people as possible to decorate their business, shopfront or home and light up Kingston to build the excitement and joy that Christmas brings. We will be presenting cash prizes to the best decorated business during the evening.


This event will be Covid Safe and all participants and businesses will need to be conscious of Covid-19 requirements.
