Santa is heading our way with special appearances this Saturday, December 8, in Stokes Valley then Upper Hutt.

The Upper Hutt Leader Santa Parade will follow the new route used last year.

It will assemble in Kowhai Ave and King St and travel south along Main St, finishing in Royal St. Start time is 2pm.

About 30 businesses and organisations will be taking part.

Prizes will be awarded for best business and community entries.

The parade is on, rain or shine.

Parents are asked to keep children well clear of floats.

For safety reasons sweets will be handed out, not thrown.

Festivities in Stokes Valley get under way at 9.30am in Scott Court with craft stalls and entertainment.

At midday Santa's Stokes Valley Rotary Club-organised parade starts near the top of Stokes Valley Rd and travels down to Scott Court where more entertainment continues until 2pm.
