We joined Aunty NeeNe just outside her house in Weka Street for the Nelson Santa Parade. Poppy enjoyed the balloons and treats thrown by the clowns and especially loved the Santa float. I yelled out Poppy’s name to Santa so he said “Happy Christmas Poppy!” over his microphone.
After the parade we walked down to Founders Park where the Christmas Festival was in full swing. GranJan was there with her YoYo Nappy stall. Poppy loved watching the dancers and tried to get up on stage with them! Here is a photo of her with one of the big chicken props decorating one of the inside venues.
