Fash­ion at trol­ley derby

Waihi Leader - - News - By ME­LANIE CAMOIN news@wai­hileader.co.nz

GO Waihi has added a spe­cial fash­ion show to its an­nual Trol­ley Derby and Mar­ket Day com­ing up next week, on Satur­day Oc­to­ber 6.

The streets of Waihi will get busy from 9am with stall hold­ers on Seddon and Haszard streets and busi­nesses hav­ing some spe­cial of­fers on the day.

GO Waihi says it is af­ter more stalls with hand­made art and craft that com­ple­ment what the shops have, rather than dou­bling up.

Sev­eral bands, such as the Kerepehi Brass Band, Kati Katz band with Dix­ieland jazz will play all morn­ing while model boats, from steam and sail to war­ships, will be on dis­play in the sup­per room of the Me­mo­rial Hall.

Be­fore the trol­ley derby at mid­day, a new event has been added this year — a fash­ion show fea­tur­ing school stu­dents mod­el­ling clothes and out­fits made from re­cy­cled items, GO Waihi co-or­di­na­tor Brian Gen­til said.

Then trol­leys will take over Haszard and Seddon streets and par­tic­i­pants are en­cour­aged to en­ter the races and build­ing unique trol­leys.

He said that there are no lim­its to the cre­ations.

“Think out­side the square and come up with some­thing dif­fer­ent, like the Tardis, the ba­nana and ham­burger trol­leys we’ve seen in the past,” he said.

Prizes will be awarded at the end to dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories — men and women, boys and girls of all ages — with an open class for trol­leys that are a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, and don’t quite fit the reg­u­lar di­men­sions, he said.

The day is run in con­junc­tion with Waihi Lions and Waihi Beach Dirt Track.
