Thousands turn out for Santa parade

Nov 19th, 2008 | By | Category: Latest News, News

A THREE METRE Bart Simpson was joined by Captain Hurricane, Pikachu, Kungfu Panda and other crowd favourites at Wellington’s annual Santa Parade last week.

The fun in the sun is too good to be missed and the following slideshow will give you something to remember it by till next year.
Tens of thousands of people poured out on central city streets to enjoy the last festivities before December 25.

The Scout Association, local schools and charities like Friends of Children in Hospital made use of this opportunity to fundraise for future development of school facilities and donations.

This is also the first time a parade after party is organised by main sponsor Tip Top and Wellington City Council.

“Instead of going home, people stick around after the parade’s over. The after party is a huge success considering it’s the first time for us,” said Wellington City Council project coordinator Barbara Burke.

Watch slideshows to see some of the 75 floats in the parade.
