Lakes Entrance Festival Committee

Lakes Entrance, Victoria, Australia

Festival of St. Nicholas


The St. Nicholas Parade carries St. Nicholas' statue to the harbor for the blessing of the fleet, as Lakes Entrance is the largest fishing port in the Southern Hemisphere. St. Nicholas himself greets children before the parade. Festival activites include sand sculpture, St. Nicholas feast, a seafood cooking contest, family-friendly beach sports and barbecue, a model goat regatta, and art displays.
