About 30 people of all ages were fitted out in costumes for the Southland Santa Parade which will be held on Saturday, December 2.
Southland Santa Parade co-ordinator Alice Pottinger said they need more people to walk in the parade.
“We still have a lot costumes available. We need lots of elves, superheroes, clowns and fairies. If we can get a school group to dress up and to do a funky dance together it would be great,” she said.
Mrs Pottinger said Santa kept an eye on them and had been phoning regularly.
“Santa is convinced the weather will be good this year,” she said.
The next costume-fitting session will be held on Saturday, November 25, from 9.30am – 1pm and the last session will be on Thursday, November 30, from 7pm – 8.30pm at the 5 The Crescent, level 3.
St John Invercargill had been selected as the charity to benefit from this year’s parade collection buckets.
The 2017 Southland Santa Parade will travel along Gala, Dee, Tay and Kelvin Sts on Saturday, December 2, from 2pm.
