Myriad floats parade through Tumby Bay

FATHER Christmas arrived in style in Tumby Bay before Christmas at the annual Lions Club Christmas Pageant.

Myriad floats and vintage vehicles paraded around the streets, starting at Uringa Hostel and the hospital so the patients could see part of the festivities, and parading through the main street to finish at the travellers’ rest.

Father Christmas arrived in a Mini Moke and distributed good will, small gifts and photo opportunities.

Food stalls popped up, with the atmosphere enhanced by the Cellar Folk Club and the Tumby Bay Youth Advisory Committee provided face painting and a bouncy castle.

The Lions Club thanked the local businesses that sponsored the night and the district for their participation.
