Serena works as the head accountant at Life Maid Easy
The holiday season is not here yet but it sure is just around the corner. I feel like everything is so special and exciting around this time. I think what makes this time really special is that i get to spend more time with my family. It also gives me a well deserved break from accounting (if you are an accountant then you will definitely understand where i am coming from!).
Auckland is buzzing with so many events around this time that there is never a dull moment in the months of November. I have compiled a list of events that are taking place in Auckland to make sure that you enjoy the holiday season as much as i plan to do. So folks see you there 🙂

In November, you can join ASB Auckland Marathon. Slip on some sneakers this spring and be part of New Zealand’s premier road race. There’s five distances to choose from: the ASB Auckland Marathon, the Barfoot and Thompson Half Marathon, 12k Traverse, Heart Foundation 5k Challenge and a Kids Marathon. If you opt for the Marathon, Half Marathon or the 12km race, you’ll be in for some specular views when you cross the Auckland Harbour Bridge too.
You can also enjoy the taste of Auckland at Western Spring on 17-20 November. Try a selection of signature dishes from Auckland’s finest restaurants as you stroll through New Zealand’s most glamorous food festival. Learn from our culinary superstars in a series of new master classes and live demonstrations. Soak up the festival atmosphere with a drink in your hand and sample delicious treats from New Zealand’s top producers and celebrity chefs.
We still have Farmers Santa Parade at 1:00 pm on 30 November at Queen Street CBD. Herald the start of the Christmas season at the Auckland Santa Parade. See Auckland’s cultural diversity on display with marching bands, grand floats and giant character balloons. With Santa also making an appearance, this annual parade is a favourite for locals and visitors alike.
In December, you can go to Auckland Domain at 7:30 pm Saturday 10th December, to pack your picnic basket and head to the biggest event on the Kiwi Christmas calendar.
