FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Date: Wednesday, 5 December 2007


Classic Hits Kamo Santa Parade


Classic Hits Kamo Santa Parade is rearing to go & will be filling Kamo Road in a flurry of colour & sound this Saturday, 8th December.

Festivities will kick off in the Kamo Road Shopping centre from 9am with the Night Life Band playing outside Four Square, stall holders & performances from Mike Easterbrook the Magician, The Whangarei Community Circus – including jugglers, unicyclists & stilt walkers & look out for the friendly Story Book characters roaming the streets. The Clarke Street Chapel will also be holding a garage sale & entertaining the kids with face painting & other entertainment.

At 11am, the judging for the best three floats will take place, as decided by our panel including Jenny Barrett of The Arts Promotion Trust, Helen Blaxland of North Haven Hospice & Murray Madden of The Radio Network.

Cash prizes sponsored by Variety Number One, G.J. Gardener Homes & The Radio Network will be awarded to the winners – with first place taking away $1500.

Then at midday The Parade will travel out of Meldrum St, north of the lights, and proceed straight down Kamo Rd to finish at the Kamo High School grounds, finishing with the children’s favourite - the traditional lollie scramble, kindly sponsored by the Kamo Four Square. The road from the traffic lights at Three Mile Bush Rd intersection to the Clark Rd intersection will be closed from 11:30am. In the event that it rains, the parade will instead turn left into Wilkinson Avenue & the floats will return to where they started.

This parade promises to be the most spectacular yet, with over 40 floats including entries from the Northland Boccia Association, Whangarei Filipino Society, Falun Gong, BB Shakerz Hip Hop Dance Group, Whangarei Kart Club & Te Timatatanga O Te Matauranga Whare Kohungahunga.

Don't miss it!
