We would like to extend a huge thank you to all the participants in the 2017 Trustpower Christmas Parade. Every entrant spends time planning, rehearsing, building and organising ready to entertain on parade day. Without your contribution we quite simply would not have a parade…so thank you.
Of course, we think everyone who entered was a winner on the day and because the entries were so good it was a mammoth task for the judges to pick this year’s winners, so between you and me, we cheated a little and added some more prizes....hey its Christmas!
