Parade for Christmas
This year’s CHB Community Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, December 8, starting at 1pm.
The parade is hosted by the Central Hawke’s Bay Visitor Information Centre and this year’s theme will be Christmas at your place.
Last year’s parade attracted 26 entries, with 250 people involved.
The winning community float was Santa’s Workshop, created by Epic Ministries from St Andrew’s Church CHB, with Takapau School taking out the schools top prize, and the best corporate float award going to CHB District Libraries and CHB District Council.
Entry forms are available for decorated floats and the organisers are offering prizes in three categories — Corporate, Community and School.
The winning float in each category will get $500 prize money, $200 for second and $100 for the float voted the People’s Choice.
This year there is a new category for all — a competition to design a tree topper for CHB’s community tree.
Entry forms can be collected from the CHB Information Centre on Bogle Brothers’ Esplanade, Waipukurau or message the centre on Facebook with your email address for a digital copy.
