Pa­rade for Christ­mas

CHB Mail - - News -

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.
