The annual Two Wells Street Parade has seen in another year, with the event again well attended and showcasing a variety of stalls, entertainment options and of course colorful floats!

A warm afternoon provided the perfect backdrop for local families, and many friends and visitors, to soak up the carnival atmosphere while strolling the street and taking in the large variety of stalls.

The parade itself was full of colour, laughter and fun, with Santa announcing his arrival with the ringing of a bell.

Two Wells Regional Action Team vice president, Bev Smith-Trim, said the night was a great family-friendly event and a terrific way to celebrate the end of the year.

“I think it was a really good crowd, and the new stall holders were really happy,” Bev said.

A number of businesses along the street got into the spirit of the night by decorating their premises, with special guests, Member for Taylor, Leesa Vlahos, and Hickinbotham’s Two Wells project manager, Ruth Vagnarelli, given the honour of judging all categories of the competition, including the many floats of the parade.

The trophy for best decorated business went for the second year running to the Commercial Hotel.

Families Learning and Growing (FLAG) won the best parade entry, in the community category, for their Noah’s Ark float.

The Two Wells Pet Food and Fodder Store won the best business entrant in the parade.

Lewiston resident, Brooke Humphrys, was named as the Two Wells Street Parade princess.

Merry Christmas everyone!
