Santa arrived early in New Brighton today - by boat.

The annual New Brighton Christmas Parade kicked off about 10.30am, but not before Santa arrived in a surf rescue boat.

The parade was followed by a Christmas concert, with acts including the Natural Magic Pirate Band, and a "creative junk" fashion show.

The parade is in its 13th year.
