Christmas Parade - Friday 12 December, 6pm

The theme is ‘It’s Christmas’ and we are looking forward to another fantastic community event.

We challenge you to join in and create an amazing float to parade down Rora Street. We are planning some great entertainment and of course SANTA will feature in the Parade.

Plus up for grabs once again the “Ultimate Shield” for best overall float. Get involved with your local school, club, community group or business and start putting together your ideas for a unique float that will stand out in the crowd. 

Help us to make this year a memorable event for everyone to enjoy.
