For the first time in many years, Mangawhai will be treated to its very own Santa Parade, and now is the time – with only 128 days left till Christmas – for local businesses and organisations to design and create a festive float.
Big and small floats are welcome.” Assembling at the boat ramp off Alamar Cresent, mayor Smith will judge the floats and award prizes for the best decorated before the parade hits the road around 10am, heading along North Avenue, Robert Street, Holiday Crescent, Margaret Street and through the Wood Street shopping centre.
The convoy will then make its way down Molesworth Drive and finish at Mangawhai Activity Zone where Santa will meet the kids and be available for photo opportunities.
John has advised he would like to hear from all local organisations who want to register their interest in putting a float in the parade, lets make this an amazing day out for families.
