Family party lights kids’ day
The annual Tokoroa Light party was a great success with more than 1700 people attending the free event.
The event organised by the Tokoroa Ministries Association provides a fun and safe alternative to Halloween.
The activities included face painting, colouring competitions, stage show and animal tricks and a fancy dress competition. Each child received a sizzled sausage, drink and a bag of goodies.
Tokoroa Ministries Association chairman Brian Hagger was impressed with the turnout.
‘‘With a crowd of 1700 people through the gate it gets better every year.
‘‘The kids had a ball, they are safe and off the street.
‘‘Thank you to everyone who donated their time or goods and services.’’
The Tokoroa Ministries Association would like to thank The Tokoroa Lions Club, Pulse Energy, SKIP strategies for kids, The South Waikato District Council and the 23 local firms for making the event possible.
