On arrival the parade will be meet by Santa in his Sleigh (Deben Rotary Club) and Christmas songs performed by musicians curated by The Spirit Of Woodbridge.

The afternoon event will coincide with an opportunity for local charities to form a mini Christmas Market in which the Mill will have a stall and The BoatHouse and Coffee Link encouraged to create pop up stalls selling traditional festive treats. The proposed event offers a fun and memorable opportunity for community groups to collaborate in a unique event to showcase Woodbridge and kick off a calendar of exciting events in the town throughout December.
