floats from last year's Marton
Up high: After arriving on a
helicopter, Santa's lolly scramble
starts the celebrations at the
Marton Christmas Party in the Park.
Fun for all on Saturday
The Marton Christmas parade
will be back in town this weekend.
It will showcase groups, busi-

afternoon, followed by the annual
Christmas Party in the Park.
It will be the fourth year

in the Park, but the parade itself
has been running for much longer.
The afternoon's events will kick
off at 3.30pm with a spitfire fly-
Jaycees event organiser Bren-
dan Williams said the parade was
a chance for the whole community
to come out and have fun.
It's a chance for local busi-
nesses to showcase themselves,''
It was important for people to
support these sorts of community
affairs, he said.
If communities don't get
behind these events people won't
give up their time to organise
The floats will be judged in
three categories: commercial, com-
munity and schools.
Last year 25 floats took part in
the parade. People can enter
before the event, or on the day.
Everybody, especially school
children, enjoyed putting together
their entries, he said.
Even building the float can be
cool for them.''
At the end of the parade the fun
will move to Marton Park.
There Santa will join the
festivities from a helicopter.
Marton Jaycees put on a lolly
scramble for the children, before
the Party in the Park takes off.
