It really is awesome:

Don’t take our word for it, check out our testimonials:

“I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Santa Parade again this year. We have travelled down from Warkworth each year for the past 8 years with our now 4 children, and wouldn’t miss it for the world, and of course I have memories of coming as a child myself a long, looooong time ago!
Well done for another great parade and for the delight brought to so many people. It has become a tradition in our family that we all look forward to, and for my mum (almost 70), with my 2 year old snuggled on her lap, she said ‘this is Christmas for me’.”

“I vividly remember the excitement I felt when I saw Pluto (the Disney character) in the Santa Parade when I was young. I screamed out ‘There’s Pluto!!!’ and all of the adults turned and looked at me with ‘Awww, isn’t he cute’ looks on their faces. I remember thinking ‘Why are they looking at me? There’s Pluto!!’

Anyway, I’d love it if Moe could do that for some other kid :)”
