No time for mid win­ter blues dur­ing Christ­mas fes­ti­val

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

With just days un­til the doors open on Mata­mata’s Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val, the town’s tal­ented en­ter­tain­ers are fi­nal­is­ing their per­for­mances.

A num­ber of groups and in­di­vid­u­als will be tak­ing to the stage as part of this year’s Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val. Their hope will be to en­ter­tain the large crowds ex­pected at the pop­u­lar fundrais­ing event.

Fi­nal prepa­ra­tions are also be­ing made to the Christ­mas courts, trees, cafe and shop.

Mid Win­ter Christ­mas Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Jill Sanson-Emer­ton said she is ‘‘re­ally ex­cited’’ and look­ing for­ward to shar­ing the won­der­ful tal­ent Mata­mata has in the com­mu­nity.

‘‘ Months in the mak­ing some of the pieces I have seen from our team of ex­hibitors are ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.

‘‘Bright­en­ing the souls of oth­ers in the mid­dle of win­ter will be an ab­so­lute priv­i­lege to all in­volved.’’

The fes­ti­val opens to­mor­row, from 10am to 6pm, con­tin­u­ing on Fri­day from 10am to 6pm then on Satur­day from 10am to 3pm at 11 Meura St.

En­try is $5 for adults and gold coin for chil­dren. There will be no eftpos at the fa­cil­ity, but plenty to pur­chase.
