Annual Christmas Eve Santa Run 2017

The Gisborne Fire brigade will again be taking Santa along the streets to deliver lollies this Christmas Eve. Keeping in with the past few years we are stopping at areas where large groups of people have gathered, like intersections for example. We no longer travel down every street and down dead end courts.

For residents living in the areas of the Rosehill estate, and Gisborne Fields we will only be stopping at the following pre-determined locations;

  • CNR of Tovey Way and Rothschild Road near the park land for Gisborne Fields, and
  • CNR of Gordon Boulevard and Morand Street for Rosehill Estate

Residents living around The Boulevard, Black Ave, Sunnypark Close, Scenic Court area – we will only be stopping at the reserve between Landscape Close and Mountain View Way.

Maps available here Santa streets 2017.


We will be starting at around 12:30pm at Chessy Park, keep an ear out for the sirens of our fire trucks that will be approximately 5 to 10 minutes ahead of the fire truck with Santa on board. Santa may arrive at your location at a different time than normal.

We will only be stopping near intersections where people are gathered, or on main roads where there are people gathered in large groups.

We would like to encourage everybody to gather in the safest possible location with adult supervision for children.
