The 2018 New Norfolk Christmas Parade will take place on Saturday, December 8 from 12 noon to 1 pm. It is one of Tasmania’s best known Christmas celebrations and brings over a thousand people to the New Norfolk town centre each year.
Previous parades have featured community groups, fire brigades, schools and bands, all dressed up, making plenty of noise and celebrating the holiday season. Derwent Valley Rotary are reaching out to interested individuals and groups of people who would like to participate in this year’s parade.
