Santa Claus Parade Will Now Go To Pier
The Sydney Santa Claus parade will be coming to Whitney Pier, after all.
The CBRM Recreation Department had planned to bypass the neighbourhood this year in an effort to cut down on the length of the parade route.
However, people who gathered for a meeting last night to discuss holding a separate parade in the Pier got the good news from their local councillor Jim MacLeod.
The parade will still start at 6:00 PM on November 29th, a change from the 11:00 AM start time.
Participants will assemble on north George Street and end at the mosque on James Street in Whitney Pier.
Meanwhile, Councillor MacLeod says a parade committee will be formed in the New Year with the various groups involved to look at options for the Santa Claus parade in the future.
