South Waikato News - - NEWS -

THE BIG DAY: Af­ter Toko­roa’s Big Week­end it is Pu­taruru’s turn to host its an­nual Christ­mas Pa­rade fes­tiv­i­ties this Fri­day start­ing at 6pm.

‘‘This year it will also in­clude carol singing im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the pa­rade,’’ Pride in Pu­taruru man­ager Lee Robert­son said.

Christ­mas on the Lawn is a first for this year.

‘‘Christ­mas on the Lawn is a new con­cept. It is the brain­child of Tracey and Steve Thompson who run Pu­taruru Ho­tel. The carol singing seg­ment af­ter the pa­rade will be led by the area’s churches with ev­ery­one in­vited to join in,’’ Lee said.

To date there are 24 floats in the pa­rade.
