The 2010 Orewa New World Santa Parade is shaping up to be a cracker event to start the festive season. This Saturday the par- ade follows a new route, starting at 12.30pm at the Orewa Beach Res- erve carpark and travel- ling north along Hibiscus Coast Highway to Flor- ence Ave. Last year s event drew about 6000 spectators who lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the 135 floats. These included cheer- leaders, hip hop dancers, clowns, stilt walkers, marching bands, Ronald McDonald, children in bright costumes and tele- vision characters like Spongebob Squarepants and Dora the Explorer. Santa himself is the grand finale, attracting the biggest smiles and waves. The parade is a com- munity event, offering great exposure to com- mercial and non- commercial team and school floats. There are $100 prize vouchers for the best float in each of five categories. As part of the par- ade Destination Orewa Beach is working with Orewa Baptist Church to run the annual Christ- mas food drive to help Hibiscus Coast families affected by the economic downturn. Organisers request that everyone attending the parade bring along a non-perishable item of food to contribute. Volunteers from Orewa Baptist Church will be pushing wheelie bins and collecting donations along the parade route. Pastor Paul Collins says the plan is to sur- prise families in need with a hamper filled with food. We d like people to call up and nominate their friends or neigh- bours who are in need of a hamper. Then we ll just turn up on their door and surprise them. Call Orewa Baptist Church on (09) 426-6976 or email office@orewabap tist.org.nz to donate to the food drive or to nomi- nate someone to receive a hamper. Contact Diane Osborne on (09) 426-2638 or email diane@orewa beach.co.nz to enter a float in the parade. You can also visit www. orewabeach.co.nz to download a form.
