Fam­ily favourite back again

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Its re­turn proved such a hit last year, that the old fam­ily favourite – the Mardi Gras – is back again this year. The bright and colour­ful event, held on Fri­day night, is a great way to kick-start Alexan­dra’s an­nual fes­ti­val of spring. The re­tail area of lower Tar­bert St will be closed to all traf­fic, and a host of ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at the young and young at heart will be on of­fer. Ac­tiv­i­ties planned this year in­clude a best-dressed bike com­pe­ti­tion, the fly­ing hun­dred cy­cle races, a truck pull com­pe­ti­tion, the pop­u­lar and hi­lar­i­ous bed races and the MoreFM Fes­ti­val King com­pe­ti­tion. Live mu­sic and food stalls will also be on of­fer. The Mardi Gras gets un­der­way at 7pm, fin­ish­ing at 9pm.
