More en­tries wanted for Christ­mas pa­rade

Te Puke Times - - News -

The Seeka Te Puke Christ­mas Float Pa­rade is just over a week away.

Or­gan­is­ers are still on the look­out for en­tries, foot stalls and peo­ple to help out with the smooth run­ning of the pa­rade.

“We’re cel­e­brat­ing all things sport and Christ­mas, and look for­ward to see­ing our lo­cal sports teams, busi­nesses, com­mu­nity groups and ed­u­ca­tors all on pa­rade,” says Epic Te Puke mar­ket­ing man­ager Re­becca Larsen.

“Show us your tal­ent and join the pa­rade with your tro­phies, medals and rib­bons.”

In­di­vid­u­als are also wel­come to join the pa­rade with sports uni­forms, medals and tro­phies.

Fol­low­ing last year’s pa­rade theme, which cel­e­brated one of the district’s best­known sport­ing names, or­gan­is­ers have also se­cured one of Denny Hulme’s race cars to be part of the pa­rade.

Now owned by North­land’s War­wick Mor­timer, the 740 BHP Chevro­let V8 in which Hulme won the North Amer­i­can and Cana­dian CANAM cham­pi­onship.

The health and safety brief­ing for this year’s pa­rade will be held next Tues­day at 5.30pm at In­dian Roots restau­rant.

Reg­is­tra­tion forms can be picked up at the Te Puke Li­brary on Jel­li­coe Street or by email­ing ad­[email protected]

Of­fers of help with the pa­rade should be sent to the same email ad­dress.
