Santa Claus has come to town, albeit in pieces.
Today the 18m tall Santa that adorned the Queen St Farmers building and other Auckland buildings for 60 Christmases finally arrived in Wanaka.
The owner of the National Transport and Toy Museum at Wanaka Airport, Jason Rhodes, bought the five-tonne Santa and two of his reindeer.
The giant Christmas decorations are now in 13 pieces, on three trucks, out behind the museum.
