Con­tact Energy Satur­day in the Park

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Each year the Con­tact Energy Satur­day in the Park event dur­ing the Blos­som Fes­ti­val has proved to be a huge hit.

Cater­ing to all ages, it of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to get out, meet up with friends and fam­ily and en­joy what can only be de­scribed as a hive of ac­tiv­ity.

The event kicks off with the Grand Pro­ces­sion at Pi­o­neer Park, where thou­sands upon thou­sands of peo­ple will line Cen­ten­nial Av­enue and Tar­bert St to get a glimpse of the ac­tion.

They will then make their way to a fun af­ter­noon at the Con­tact Energy Satur­day in the Park. The kids can sit back and en­joy a chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment stage with clowns, jug­glers and magic shows, whilst mum and dad will cer­tainly love the mu­sic en­ter­tain­ment on the sec­ond stage. You can ex­pect knock-out per­for­mances from Wanaka-based en­ter­tainer Jody Direen and her band, as well as Queen­stown-based party band LA So­cial Club.

Get on your feet and en­joy these fan­tas­tic per­for­mances, all the while be­ing sur­rounded by your friends and fam­ily.

The of­fi­cial crown­ing cer­e­mony and award­ing of prizes for the floats and other pa­rade en­tries will be held at 4pm. And if you’re one of those shop­pers who love get­ting their Christ­mas gifts pur­chased prior to the silly sea­son, then you are well catered to here as well.

There will be plenty of stalls to pur­chase from, as well as craft mar­kets of­fer­ing wares with a point of dif­fer­ence.

To keep you well fed and hy­drated there will also be plenty of food and bev­er­ages.

Con­tact Energy Satur­day in the Park is an event to bring the whole fam­ily to, and of­fers large dis­counts on bulk tick­ets pur­chased. These tick­ets are avail­able at the gate on the day, and chil­dren un­der five are free.

So gather grandma, the cousins, mum, dad and the kids, and head down to Satur­day in the Park, a day out for ev­ery­one to en­joy!
