Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON Santa Claus is coming to town and the Hurley family are once again preparing for his arrival. For 20 years the Northcote residents have volunteered behind the scenes of the Farmers Santa Parade held on Queen St. And this year will be no different for Steve and Vicki Hurley and their three adult daugh- ters. That's what we do, they just know the last weekend of November is the Santa parade. The kids don't know a time without the parade,'' he says. His daughters used to wave proudly on the floats to other children watching the parade when they were younger, but these days they are behind the scenes with their parents. The family will be busy doing last minute preparations from the early hours of Saturday morning into the night to prepare for the big day on Sunday. Mr Hurley was named Auckland city's volun- teer of the year last year and co-ordinates a team of more than 200 volunteers during the parade. The family will be helping in all sorts of behind-the-scenes activi- ties from sound to secur- ity to co-ordinating dance routines. Mr Hurley says there are lots of families involved in the parade. It is a family event, for families and run by fam- ilies.'' His family first got involved in the parade through a friend from Scouting. The Hurleys are among more than 400 volunteers that help get the parade going suc- cessfully each year. This is a huge, fun event and my family and Iareproudtobeapartof it,'' he says. The Farmers Santa Parade will be taking place on Sunday, Novem- ber 28, with a rain date scheduled for Sunday, December 5. It will start in Mayoral Drive, turning left on to Queen St continuing down the street and turning left into Customs St West and then up Albert St. Send us your parade video Thousands of people across the North Shore will be lining the streets to watch Christmas parades.
