Matamata Chronicle - - What’s On -

The Lat­est Fallout, and fire­works, will be the big draw­card at this year’s Christ­mas at the Park.

The Hamil­ton band, fronted by vo­cal­ist Bren­dan Pyper who is orig­i­nally from Mata­mata, will be per­form­ing songs from their self­ti­tled de­but al­bum as well as new songs at Bed­ford Park.

Au­di­ences will get to watch the band twice at the De­cem­ber 6 event. They will play at 7pm, af­ter the Mata­mata Brass Band, and again at 9pm. Stu­dents from var­i­ous schools, in­clud­ing Mata­mata In­ter­me­di­ate’s choir, Hin­uera, Ku­ranui, Te Poi and Mata­mata Chris­tian, will be singing Christ­mas-themed songs too. The Paul sis­ters, who will show off their hip hop danc­ing skills, are two of many Mata­mata Col­lege stu­dents who will per­form. Niamh Rhodes and The An­drew Sis­ters will also sing. All of th­ese en­ter­tain­ers, in­clud­ing a drum band, were scouted from the tal­ent quest at the col­lege. As­pire Arts Acad­emy dancers will also per­form and Kee­ley Frear­son will dance solo.

The night will close with twice as many fire­works as at the last lo­cal Christ­mas at the Park, the or­gan­is­ers said, at 9.15pm. This is spon­sored by Hob­biton.

The event is a com­bined ef­fort by all of the churches in Mata­mata.

Pro­ducer Iuta Vaimoso and stage man­ager Ross Bay are also look­ing for vol­un­teers to help with the gates, se­cu­rity and set­ting up and pack­ing up.

Pri­vate mes­sage them through the Christ­mas at the Park Face­book page.
