Santa is com­ing to town.

Satur­day, De­cem­ber 3 will mark Santa’s pa­rade down the main street, as the star at­trac­tion of the 2016 PRA Christ­mas Pa­rade.

En­ter­ing a float is free and open to any­one. Regis­tra­tion is es­sen­tial so ev­ery float receives a health and safety plan.

‘‘The Christ­mas pa­rade is al­ways great fun for the en­tire fam­ily’’ says pa­rade or­gan­iser Hay­ley Horne.

A win­ner will be selected from each of the five cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing best float, most hu­mor­ous, best school, best com­mer­cial and most orig­i­nal.

Win­ners re­ceive a tro­phy and $50 gift voucher, with an ex­tra $50 gift voucher for the ‘PRA pick’.

The pa­rade starts at 11am at the cor­ner of He­tana Street, head­ing down Broad­way and back up onto Arawa Street to start again.

‘‘Many of our lo­cal busi­nesses help sup­port the pa­rade, we are grate­ful to ev­ery­one, we couldn’t do it with­out them.’’
