CAR­ni­val of­fers fun and shop­ping

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - By CHE BAKER

A cel­e­bra­tion of cars, bikes and all things fes­tive will be jammed to­gether this Satur­day for the sec­ond an­nual Re­mark­ables School CAR­ni­val.

Event co-or­gan­iser Tracey Ped­er­sen said the event will in­clude a car and bike show as well as face paint­ing, mini jeeps, orb balls, a bouncy cas­tle and an abun­dance of other en­ter­tain­ment for chil­dren.

‘‘It’s a big com­mu­nity day out,’’ she said.

This year the emer­gency ser­vices will join in the fun and host dis­plays.

It was hoped the res­cue he­li­copter would also be able to take part in the ac­tion.

Ped­er­sen said the gold coin do­na­tion to en­ter the car­ni­val will give those at­tend­ing a chance to vote for the peo­ple’s choice prize for their favourite car and bike and also go in to the draw to win an am­phibi­ous car ride for two.

Those want­ing to take part in the car show could do so by sign­ing up on the Queen­stown Car Club web page or by pay­ing $5 on the day.

There will be seven cat­e­gories, with prize­giv­ing at 2pm.

More than 150 stalls sell­ing bak­ing, flow­ers, books and pam­per pack­ages will also be on of­fer.

‘‘There’s lots of lovely stalls mak­ing it a re­ally good time to do some Christ­mas shop­ping,’’ Ped­er­sen said.

Queen­stown car fa­natic John Tay­lor will be bring­ing his spe­cially made Noddy Car along.

Tay­lor said it took 12 months to build the car, which he made from a elec­tric golf buggy, and the car had been pro­fes­sion­ally painted.
