The last day of 2016 saw the annual Raglan Lion’s New Year’s Eve parade take place in front of a big crowd of spectators. As usual the floats were colourful and fun with around 25 floats taking part in the event.
Organised by the Raglan Lions Club, the event is made possible with funding from the Raglan Community Board.
