Swansea’s spectacular Christmas Parade saw thousands line the streets to watch Santa and a whole host of floats and entertainment as they made their way through the city centre on Sunday evening (20 November).
There were 71 floats at this year’s event, making it one of the city’s biggest ever Christmas parades.
From community groups to superheroes, the parade also featured street theatre group, Spark! whose brightly lit drummers wowed audiences along the route.

Council cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said: “The Christmas countdown for Swansea really did start on Sunday night. This year’s parade – another free event provided by the council – really was a great spectacle once again this year.
“It was one of Swansea’s biggest Christmas parades, attracting a massive crowd, and it was hugely well received by those who attended.
“So many of Swansea’s communities took part in the event and I’d like to thank them all for their input and hard work in helping to make it such a success.
“We had some excellent commercial acts within the parade but what really makes it so special and so unique to Swansea, is seeing so many local people going to so much effort and thoroughly enjoying themselves in the process. Those who weren’t in the festive mood before the start of it, definitely are now.”
