Waipu Christmas Parade 2011
Christmas Eve in Northland, there is no better place to be than Waipu, for the annual Christmas Parade. This year was no exception, and even a shower of rain did not dampen the spirits. Lots of people had dressed for the occasion and Gloria Mills, Janine McGregor and Braden one the $50 onl0oker prize (does anyone have a photo of the winners?? email me) See the photos below – if you have others email them to me and I can add them to the show!)
One visiting twitterer – @aaron_bird said the Waipu Santa parade was 10x better than the over commercialized city parades – it was fabulous!
The winning float ($500 Prize): a popular choice and was won by the Waipu Playcentre with their caravan of zoo cages.
