All of Tuakau and surrounding areas residents turned out to greet Santa Claus and the rest of the awesome floats for the 2016 Christmas parade.

Floats from the local schools, clubs and the fire brigade turn up on a beautiful summer’s day which started at 9am with a band and stalls placed up and down the main street with the parade starting at 3pm.

Thanks to all that enjoyed Tuakau’s biggest day of the year and special thanks to the Tuakau Hotel for allowing me access to their balcony to take photos from.

Note: The Pukekohe Santa Parade starts 2pm Sunday afternoon.
