The forecast was against it and the day dawned bleak - but Te Awamutu Rotary Club made the call early to continue with Sunday’s Coresteel Te Awamutu Rotary Christmas Parade and the residents came out in force to celebrate the festive season.
Organisers expressed their gratitude to the groups, businesses and organisations that went to so much trouble to create their floats and to the public who came out to show their support.
“Te Awamutu Rotary is very grateful to all our volunteers for helping make the parade such a success,” said Rotary spokesperson Chris Kay.
“The day turned out to be perfect, with the weather holding off just at the right time.
