Seven Sharp host Hilary Barry lent a hand at the country's biggest Santa Parade, in Auckland yesterday.
Thousands of people braved the rain to catch a glimpse of the famous man in the red suit.
It's a huge operation for those in charge of staging the Queen St parade, especially after a year of disruption to preparations.
Ever keen to help, Hilary offered her services and was put in charge of leading the parade and keeping the elves under control.
Watch how she got on in the video above.
