Last year (2010) the parade saw some 15,000 people line the shores of the Mooloolaba to watch the parade and some 40 plus vessels competing for various sponsor donated prizes, we are seeking sponsorship in various forms to make this year's event bigger and better than ever before.

Together we can all make a parade to look forward to every year, to bring our children to and to kick off the festive season with an amazing community event, sponsored by local businesses. We would like to see this parade be recognized on the world scale as an event to be witnessed and as a major draw card for the Sunshine Coast Tourism calendar.
