Two Wells Christmas Parade soon

How quickly time is passing – the Christmas Parade is only a few weeks away.

The main street of Two Wells will be closed to through traffic from 4 p.m. to 9.30 p.m. on the evening of Friday 12th December.

Special guest for the evening is Andrew Reimer from Radio 5AA.  Come along and meet this very friendly caring announcer.

Once again the area will be declared a dry zone until 5.30 on the Saturday morning. Alcohol can only be purchased and consumed on licenced premises. Several stall holders have already signed up – others wishing to have a stall must obtain their application forms and return them with payment prior to 21st November.  Forms are available by contacting Bev on pacapark2@bigpond.com or by picking one up from the Two Wells Craft Shop during opening hours 9.30 – 4.00 Tuesday to Friday or 9.30 – 1.00 on Saturdays.

A new attraction this year is a petting zoo which will be set up in the car park of the Craft Shop.  Come along and cuddle some gorgeous animals.

Organisers are scheduling the entertainment in the street on the night and are calling for expressions of interest from anyone wishing to participate.  Forms for this are also available via the two methods listed above for stallholders.  These must also be returned by 21st November.

Do you know a young person who really helps in the community?  Nominations are being called for 2014 Parade Prince and Princess.  Any young person between the ages of 12 – 18 can be nominated.  Send your nomination to pacapark2@bigpond.com or write it out and leave it at the Craft Shop addressed to Bev before 21st November.

The Parade will feature two bands again this year – and will march off at 7 p.m.  Participants need to report to Mrs Robyn Ford on the corner of Wells Road by 6.30 p.m.

Father Christmas will be in the Old Council Chambers after the Parade to meet and greet the children.  This is also the venue for the community contests to be viewed.

The Parade is presented each year for your enjoyment by the Two Wells Regional Action Team with support from businesses in the region and also the District Council of Mallala.

We look forward to seeing many locals and visitors mingling together and enjoying the event.  Come along and support the event – it takes a lot of work to arrange everything.  (Rumour has it that a Christmas event in the Barossa has been cancelled as it has become too much work for their volunteers.)  Lets make this a fantastic friendly evening for one and all.
