Will Santa show up in Auckland?

From The Panel, 4:26 pm on 15 November 2018

Auckland's event agency is withdrawing from funding from future Santa Parades.

Next week's parade will go ahead but at a loss for the second year in a row, despite support from commercial sponsors and volunteers.

ATEED says the parade is not a big domestic tourism draw like other festivals such as Diwali and the Lantern festival.

The panelists weigh in on whether this is a bit grinchy.
