Santa’s on his way

Franklin County News - - OUT & ABOUT -

The Tuakau Christ­mas pa­rade will cheer through town once again this year lead­ing up to the fes­tive sea­son.

Plen­ti­ful in colour, noise and en­ter­tain­ment, floats will line the main streets of Tuakau from 3pm on Satur­day, De­cem­ber.

Stalls and en­ter­tain­ment start at 9am.

Tuakau Lions Club’s Bob Bell has been help­ing to or­gan­ise the pa­rade and said it would be day of joy.

‘‘Peo­ple re­ally en­joy it,’’ said Bell.

‘‘It gets the pub­lic in­volved and pro­vides en­ter­tain­ment for the com­mu­nity...the schools re­ally en­joy it.

‘‘[It also] gets the busi­nesses a chance to show off their ad­ver­tis­ing.’’

En­try fee is free, with the float cat­e­gory win­ners tak­ing away $100 while sec­ond place takes away $75 and third place takes away $50.

There are five cat­e­gories avail­able to en­ter; Busi­ness, school, pre-school, club and church groups.

‘‘Gen­er­ally all the floats looks re­ally good - they all stand out,’’ said Bell.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to en­ter con­tact Bob Bell on 09 236 8384.


This year’s Tuakau Christ­mas Pa­rade is set to im­press.
