Big crowds swarmed through the town of Katherine last night hoping to get a glimpse of Santa Claus.
Hundreds of people lined the side of Railway Terrace from about 6pm to watch the parade, filled with Christmas cheer.
Sweaty conditions contrasted with the storms of last year for a trouble-free parade.
The crowds stayed on in good spirits as they promenaded up and down Katherine Terrace for food, goodies and a chat.
Parade and party organiser, the Chamber of Commerce’s Sue Jones, was singled out for congratulations.
