Along Taylor's Road people were starting to arrive just after 6.00 where the kiddies rides were in full swing and people were already lining up outside The Olive for some dinner that was available.
|The corner of The Village was the place setting for the kiddie rides|
|Good old Trent - always entertaining the island - and there's Alison and Adam in the background|
|Our beautiful island dancers|
The beautiful girls who are our island dancers were performing outside the Commonwealth Bank as was a band who provided the music for those girls to dance to.

The pageant started with the haunting sound of a single bagpipe and then the lovely Miss Norfolk entrants were escorted down Taylor's Road in gorgeous sports cars.

|A large crowd were gathering for some spectacle. We had to leave to pick up Tom from the airport|
|My three boys|
Last year we had Vince and Rob in the police truck wearing santa hats, the fire brigade and the VRA were also in last year's parade but this year the fire truck had to be at the airport for the plane to come in and the VRA had organised their Christmas party on the Friday night and couldn't change the date to accommodate the change of date for the pageant but it was a great parade anyway with all the beauty entrants and we still had Santa who threw lollies to the kids which was great.
