Open­ing the Fes­ti­val with Mardi Gras

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s at this event the gen­eral public will also get the first glance of the 2015 Blos­som Fes­ti­val Princesses who will be on stage join­ing in on the fes­tiv­i­ties.

A highly an­tic­i­pated ac­tiv­ity dur­ing the evening is the fire­works dis­play.

Last year the dis­play left hun­dreds of chil­dren with wide smiles as fundrais­ing ef­forts al­lowed a huge range of fire­works to be let off for 10 min­utes, How­ever this year’s dis­play is go­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter than be­fore.

In Novem­ber of 2014 a gen­tle­man ap­proached Event Man­ager Martin McPher­son, of­fer­ing to pay for the 2015 fire­works dis­play.

‘‘I am pleased to re­port that we banked his gen­er­ous do­na­tion and once again res­i­dents will ex­pe­ri­ence an in­ter­na­tional qual­ity fire­works dis­play as part of Mardi Gras at this year’s Blos­som Fes­ti­val.

‘‘Words fail me when I come to ex­press my grat­i­tude to this man and his wife who wish to re­main anony­mous...’’

The Mardi Gras is an ex­cel­lent way to start the Fes­ti­val, and opens your eyes to just how much plan­ning and or­gan­i­sa­tion has gone into cre­at­ing a Fes­ti­val that has well and truly stood the test of time.

Don’t miss it!
