Monday 5th December, 2011The Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust made their inaugural appearance in Dunedin's Santa Parade on Sunday 4 December 2011. Over 25 volunteers, Trust staff and supporters donned penguin costumes, yellow beaks and masks in true penguin style, and danced, skated, uni-cycled and drove mobile penguins along George Street. Up to 40,000 spectators turned out on the day to experience the fun and Christmas atmosphere of this longstanding community event. And, of course, the big guy turned up too - in his traditional red and white. Thank you to everyone who supported the Trust's parade - we plan on doing it again next year!
