Many locals got involved in these annual parades and made them very special and enjoyable events as shown here in the Rotorua Photo News of 1965.






Another popular event on New Years Eve, Rotorua Photo News 1964
The Rotorua Photo News was published from September 1963 to April 1971 and can be seen in the Don Stafford Room,  Heritage Collection on the 2nd Floor.
