North Waikato News - - Front Page - By FRANCES FER­GU­SON

With Christ­mas eight days away, Santa will fin­ish his fes­tive ride through the North Waikato in Te Kauwhata on Fri­day night.

Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties will kick off at 5pm with an evening of street ac­tiv­i­ties then the pa­rade start­ing at 7pm.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude a free sausage siz­zle put on by the lo­cal Lions, a Christ­mas stock­ing raf­fle, live mu­sic from The Rem­nants and The Front-Lin­ers, as well as late night shop­ping, face paint­ing and lots of fun for the fam­ily.

Am­ber Casey from Te Kauwhata Com­mu­nity Events said last year’s pa­rade proved so suc­cess­ful, they’ve de­cided to follow the same pro­gramme.

Chil­dren at Te Kauwhata Child­care and Learn­ing Cen­tre have been busy pre­par­ing their float for the spe­cial event.

Called the Se­cret Gar­den, chil­dren will dress up as in­sects sit­ting inside a gar­den they cre­ated from paint and card­board.

Float en­try forms are avail­able from DISC in Te Kauwhata, the li­brary and the Post & Of­fice.

PRETTY AS A PETAL: Chil­dren, all aged 4, from the Te Kauwhata Child­care and Learn­ing Cen­tre, Jahna Love­grove, Jaeda Davis, Ad­di­son Rankin, Zachary Miller, teacher Keri Whi­taker and Jaden Burns, have been cre­at­ing flow­ers for their float.
