Te Anau's annual Santa Parade was a roaring success on Saturday as a week of wind and rain cleared up and the sun shone down on the floats and crowd.

Organiser Leona McCracken said this year's parade included eight floats, including a 16m long Real Journeys boat towed by a Northern Southland Transport truck.

The organisers had been worried the massive boat would not fit down Te Anau's main street, but in the end it did, she said.

There were also classic cars, animals and Santa riding in on a lawn mower.
