Decorations abound as Hastings embraces Blossom Festival

Decorations abound as Hastings embraces Blossom Festival

Hastings mid city fountain, lamp posts, store windows, and bikes will be decked out in flowers as part of this year’s Blossom festivities.

Hawke’s Bay floral artists are aiming to have 100 floating flower arrangements in the Hastings fountain on Blossom Parade day on Saturday 14 September; while Hastings retailers will be embracing spring in their windows and lamp posts along the parade route will be festooned in flowers, balloons and posters. 

School children are being invited to dress up their bikes and be part of the parade, with the most festive bike winning $100 cash prize.  There will also be spot prizes.

Local police will be joining in the fun with lollies to share with children being good.

Around 50 to 70 members of Hawke’s Bay’s floral art societies will take over the Hastings Women’s Rest from 3pm on Friday preceding the parade to add around 1000 daffodils bases.  

The flowers have been donated by Taniwha Gardens in Takapau that hosts a month-long daffodil festival to raise funds for Plunket.  The Blossom Festival floating blooms will be taken back to Taniwha to float on the pond there at the end of the Parade day.
