11:59 am on 2 December 2012

More than 100,000 people are expected along the streets of Riccarton for the annual Santa parade in Christchurch on Sunday afternoon.

Organiser Pam Morris said paralympian Sophie Pascoe will be the special guest, for what will be the 65th time the parade has been held.

The parade route will follow the same route as last year, through Riccarton Road.

Ms Morris said there are about 125 entries in the parade, including about 80 floats.
