They came, they saw, they cheered — tens of thousands basked in glorious sunshine at the Howick Santa Parade on Sunday.

The masses were treated to more than 50 floats featuring community groups, schools, clubs, bands, day care centres and kindergartens as well as not-for-profit and commercial groups.

And as always, Santa brought up there rear to the delight of the crowds. Meanwhile, judges found it difficult to choose the best entries from the Howick Santa Parade floats.
