Christ­mas Car­ni­val this Satur­day


Or­gan­is­ers are promis­ing hours of fun at the CHB Christ­mas Car­ni­val this Satur­day, start­ing with the an­nual Christ­mas Pa­rade in Waipuku­rau start­ing at 11am.

Spec­ta­tors are ad­vised to get a good spot for the pa­rade, which will start at the rail­way end of Ru­atani­wha St and make its way along the main street, lead­ing the way to Rus­sell Park where the Christ­mas Car­ni­val con­tin­ues with live mu­sic from The Muser­ables and the Napier Pipe Band, a visit from Santa, sto­ry­telling with Mary Kip­pen­berger and Rhubarb, and Christ­mas car­ols with Bay City Church.

At 1.45pm the Christ­mas pa­rade prize­giv­ing will be held, with CHB mayor Alex Walker giv­ing out prizes for the best floats in each cat­e­gory. Then at 1.55pm a lolly scram­ble will sig­nal the end of the car­ni­val.

Through­out the af­ter­noon there will also be bouncy cas­tles, vin­tage fire truck rides, mini hot rods rides and face paint­ing, as well as a free ice block and sausage upon ar­rival.

Fun at Rus­sell Park at last year’s CHB Christ­mas Car­ni­val.
