FESTIVE CELEBRATIONS: Geraldine's Santa parade will return to the town next week.

Santa's on his way to Geraldine.

The town's popular Christmas parade will return to Geraldine on December 7 for Santa's annual tour.

More than 30 businesses have signed up for this year's event, with a further 25 expected to come forward over the next few days, committee member Rachel Harper said.

"Entries are still pouring in. We'll probably get round about the same as last year."

She said it was pleasing to see an influx of businesses taking part for the first time.

"We've got quite a few new ones that have put their name down."

The event, called The Go Geraldine Christmas Parade, will follow the same route as previous years, starting on Talbot St at 7pm.
