Crowd numbers may have been slightly lower than last year, but the 2010 Blenheim Christmas Parade did not fail to please. Squeals of delight rang throughout the streets of Blenheim on Sunday as 38 floats paraded in a succession of bright colours and cheerful displays. Marlborough 4 Fun chief executive Katrina Lange said organisers were thrilled with how smoothly the event ran. â€œWe received great feedback on the pre-parade entertainment and it was really great to see the amazing amount of effort which went into the floats, the crowd really seemed to enjoy it,â€? she said. Winning the best float prize was the Phillipino Marlborough Community Club while Idea Services won second place and the Marlborough Motocross Club won third. In the walking group category the Marlborough District Brass Band won first place and the Blenheim and Districts Highland Pipe Band won second.
