Santa’s rid­ing into Paeroa at week­end

Waihi Leader - - News -

Santa and singing will help ring in the Christ­mas cheer at Paeroa on Satur­day night.

The town is hold­ing its an­nual Santa Pa­rade and Car­ols in the Park, which prom­ises to be a fun twi­light fam­ily evening.

Jo Til­s­ley from Pos­i­tive Paeroa says the event is ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated every year and this year was no ex­cep­tion.

“It’s al­ways won­der­ful and we are re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.”

The pa­rade would be­gin at 6pm and travel up Paeroa’s main street, with the fi­nal des­ti­na­tion the Paeroa Do­main.

At­trac­tions in­cluded self­ies with Santa, a me­chan­i­cal surf­board, a tyre chang­ing com­pe­ti­tion, ham­mer strike, gi­ant Snakes ‘n’ Lad­ders, Twister and Pick Up Sticks along­side a bouncy cas­tle,

face paint­ing and much more.

The at­trac­tions were pro­vided by Pos­i­tive Paeroa and free for the com­mu­nity to en­joy, she says.

“We also have food stalls on site, prize­giv­ing and we will fin­ish the evening with carol singing, ac­com­pa­nied by lo­cal mu­si­cians.”

The Paeroa Santa Pa­rade is al­ways a big hit with fam­i­lies and res­i­dents.
