Gerringong Christmas Parade - 20th Dec 14


Hi Guys,

On Saturday 20th December is the Gerringong Christmas Parade. In the past few years we have tagged along with the Mini Car Club NSW for a short drive from Albion Park to Gerringong. At Gerringong the cars are decorated in a Christmas theme (tinsel, ribbons, etc) and form part of the parade that does a lap of the main street, before parking in the Anglican Church grounds nearby.

The event is run by the Rotary Club and they have many markets with food to get lunch and the normal assortment of shops and stalls.

I'll relay the times/locations here once MCC NSW puts up their schedule.

Thanks Timmy

If someone up my way is going I'm more than happy to tag along - Might be a bit hard with you fairly far south in comparison to me. 11 Dec 2014, 10:48

I would normally go but it's my wife's birthday and we would normally go out to breakfast so don't think I'll be there. If plans change happy to give you a lift James.
