Riverton will be filled with festivity on Christmas Eve when the town's Christmas Parade rolls out.

Parade co-ordinator Raewyn Black said this year they had tried to capture a Riverton theme.

"It's got a seaside look to it . . . with lots of new floats as well," she said.

The parade will be led out by the Waimatuku Pipe Band at 7.30pm on Christmas Eve and head down Palmerston St.

"Its a great way to fill in the night between dinner and when the little ones go to bed, but there is something for everyone," Ms Black said.

Organisers weren't sure how many floats would be in this year's parade. "You don't need to register, but we always have bands, classic cars, vintage machinery and, of course, Santa.'
