Pa­rade joy

South Waikato News - - FRONT PAGE -

Therewere owls, a dash of flu­o­res­cent colours, Santa’s lit­tle helpers and wacky crea­tures, which helped to make Pu­taruru’s An­nual Christ­mas Pa­rade an over­whelm­ing success.

The pa­rade, which was held last Fri­day evening on Princes St, saw 30 cre­ative floats take to the streets to en­ter­tain the hun­dreds of spec­ta­tors.

Pride in Pu­taruru man­ager Lee Robert­son said the float pa­rade was hugely suc­cess­ful.

‘‘One com­ment to me af­ter­wards was that it was the best one ever. I haven’t been around long enough to ver­ify that,’’ he said.

Mr Robert­son said 30 floats were in­volved along with 20 clas­sic cars.

‘‘St John’s bar­be­cued sausages and the Churches pro­vided carol singers and all in all it went very well in­deed. A great night.’’ The Christ­mas Pa­rade win­ners were: Ser­vice: SPCA Com­mer­cial: The Honda Shop Youth: Pu­taruru Child Care Over­all win­ner: Pu­taruru Child Care.

South Waikato’s fes­tive mo­ments are not over, with Man­gakino hold­ing its Christ­mas Pa­rade this Satur­day be­gin­ning at 11am in the town cen­tre.
