It is time to start thinking about entering a float in the Geraldine Christmas Parade.
Registrations for the event have opened and organisers welcome anyone wanting to take part.
The parade, which will take place on December 1, from 6pm to 8pm, will start on the corner of Hislop and Talbot Sts and will travel along Talbot St to Peel St.
A range of activities will take place in the Geraldine Domain following the parade, including a lolly scramble, best float prize-giving and Santa Sak prize draw.
