On Wednesday afternoon, Norwood/Newstead Playgroup held their second annual Children's Christmas Parade.
The concept was born in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions last year, with playgroup coordinator Verity Quill wanting to help the children experience the joy of a Christmas parade.
"It was born out of the cancellation of last year's Christmas parade, we wanted our kids to experience a Christmas parade and it's now become a fun annual event for our playgroup," Ms Quill said.
To help spread the Christmas cheer, the parade makes its way through the Regis aged care home, with residents coming out to wave at the children and get into the spirit of Christmas.
Joined by a bagpiper playing Christmas carols and an ambulance covered in tinsel, the children sang a rousing rendition of Jingle Bells to the delight of the Regis residents.
Ms Quill said while the event was fun for the kids, it had also become a much-loved event for the parents.
"The adults really enjoy it too, it's just such a moving experience when you move through and see the residents waving at us," she said.
"It's about that Christmas spirit."
