Well done to Justin Bade from the Ponsonby Business Association for driving the Ponsonby mardi gras fundraiser.
As someone who runs the Newmarket Business Association and keeps close to Justin Bade, I have to say Ponsonby is fortunate to have him on board.
The success of business districts and their promotional activity, however, cannot rely on one person. The entire community must rally around. I hope everyone who wants to see the development of a Ponsonby mardi gras gets positively involved.
An annual signature event like this would be broadcast around the country and would be great for Ponsonby.
