Thames (NZ): Thames Xmas Parade 10 December 2016

The sky was overcast with a light drizzle of rain, but Thamesites lined the mile long Pollen Street eagerly waiting for the annual parade. From the time the goldfield opened 149 years ago, the townsfolk have always turned out for a parade. There were floats featuring young and old, that kept the crowd in place for nearly forty minutes.
Some highlights shown in the photographs below and a slide show is available on You Tube.
