Entries needed for Santa Parade


Santa will once again visit Nelson next month but he is looking for some more floats to join him.

The Nelson Santa Parade will be held on Sunday, December 4, from the church steps to Trafalgar Park.

Organiser Huup Waagen says they’d like to see some more entries sign up for the annual parade.

“We usually have 30-40 floats with locals dressing themselves, vehicles, and animals.

“We always get the more traditional and established businesses, and then we get the recreational and community groups, it’s a real mix, but it’s always people who just want to connect with each other and display something,” he says.

Huup says they want as many entries as they can get for the parade.

To enter, people can go onto the website, where further information is published.
