Preparations for Christmas parade on the march

By Judi Frost

The countdown is on! Christmas is just weeks away and that means the popular Two Wells Christmas Street Parade is not far away.

We have the City of Elizabeth Pipe Band attending again as well as two others, being the Port Adelaide City Band and the Mitcham City Brass Band.

Stall holder forms and parade participation registration forms are available from the Two Wells Craft Shop or email twrat@bigpond.com.

A prominent part of the parade is the honour of being named “Parade prince or princess”.

The parade prince or princess is a young person who assists in the community and who you would like to honour with a nomination.

The cut off date for stalls, parade participation and prince and princess nominations is December 1st.

Please be aware the Two Wells main street (Old Port Wakefield Road) will be closed to all traffic except stall and parade participants by 4.00pm from which time stallholders can begin setting up.

The parade will commence at 7pm sharp and participants are required to report to the marshal on Wells Road by 6.30pm.

As in the past, there are competitions residents can enter, including this year’s challenge of creating and decorating a Christmas Wreath, so please get busy and start gathering your supplies now.

Entries must be lodged at the Craft Shop (with your name and age on them) by 4pm on the day of the parade, or of course any time before.

For any further information about the street parade please contact Caroline Scutcheon on 0417 801 178, Evelyn Dyer on 0419 811 983 or Judi Frost on 0427 417 905.
