Christmas parade plans

IT is less than two months until this year's New Norfolk Christmas Parade at noon on December 8. Event organiser Ngaire Glover said inquiries had already started to come in. The theme will be peace in the world.

The New Norfolk Business Alliance has decided not to continue its Christmas Derwent Dollars Draw this year but a donor has offered to provide prizes for parade participants in a variety of categories.

All inquiries for parade participation should be made to Ngaire on 0419 337 608 or email (all entries need to be registered in advance).


  1. This article implies that the New Norfolk Business Alliance are withdrawing funding for the Christmas Parade - that is incorrect. Please note that the New Norfolk Business Alliance actually pays for the entire Christmas Parade - a total of $5,000 each year. We haven't withdrawn funding at all - we simply did not have the resources to increase it.

  2. Um, no, it just says "no Derwent Dollar Draw this year". Is that right or wrong? And how about some more news from the business alliance?
