Nelson residents will pay tribute to emergency service personnel on Saturday when the city holds an emergency services parade.

More than 100 paramedics, firefighters, police officers, surf lifesavers and search and rescue volunteers will march down Trafalgar Street.

The parade on Trafalgar Street will start at 11am, rain or shine.
