Gerringong Christmas Parade - 19th December

Unread postby timmy201 » Tue Dec 15, 2015 9:10 am

I'll be going along to this with the Mini Car Club. It's normally a bit of fun, decorate your car and drive down the street as part of the parade. There is lots of food/drink/market stalls to see afterwards (and the mini people get to park up close to the action afterwards). If anyone wants to join along the meeting spot is at Albion Park McDonalds at 9:30am

Gerringong Street Parade

Once again the Mini Car club of NSW has been invited to participate in the Street Parade. Join the celebrations when the Rotary Club of Gerringong presents the Christmas Street Parade and Party. Food stalls, market and craft stalls, Santa will help bring the main street and the Old School Park to life.

The Street Parade led by the Illawarra Pipe Band, vintage cars, hot rods, trikes, community and sporting groups will travel the main street.

Have photos taken with Santa by a professional photographer, buy unique and unusual gifts for Christmas from the many craft & specialty stores including clothing and toys, other highlights include face painting for the kids and baby animal farm.

Convoy Details

Meet at McDonalds Heathcote, cnr. Heathcote Rd & Princess Hwy. Leaving at 8:30am, travelling south to pick up others at Albion Park McDonalds at around 9:30am, then leaving there at 9:45am for the rest of the journey to the “Mick Cronan Oval” in Blackwood St, Gerringong.

There we will decorate our cars and form up for our position in the parade around 10:30am. The parade starts at 11:00am and goes for about an hour, we will then form up in the grounds of StGeorges Church for a casual display of our cars, and a look at the other festivities in Gerringong, then free and easy as you please.

More details please contact Rob Weir on 0418 161 918

Thought I'd add a couple of photos, it was another fun parade although quite hot outside (and in the mini too)
