All hands on deck to prepare float
Hastings district councillor Wendy Schollum lent a hand preparing the council’s float for this year’s Hastings Blossom Parade.
Many hands have been on deck preparing another spectacular display to join the more than 50 floats that will hit the streets of Hastings this Saturday.
Held annually since 1950, more than 20,000 people are expected to take in this year’s event, with the parade starting at 11am on the corner of Lyndon Rd and Warren St.
■ A prizegiving for the best floats in seven categories, as well as the People’s Choice Award, will be held at 1.15pm at Civic Square.
