Mahurangi Festival of Lights July 8th to July 20th Assistance Sought for a Matakana Event to be included. Are you up for it? Please contact Murray Chapman (see contacts below)
The Festival was a huge success last year and this year looks like it will be even bigger and better as we have ATEED involved, this means we will have a much greater advertising reach as they are going to be running a Winter Festival throughout Auckland for all of July.
We want to run the Mahurangi Winter Festival of Lights during the school holidays in July 8th to 20th and I need some assistance in getting Matakana involved again this year, last year as you know Barbara organised a wonderful Black Tie Dinner and the Village was also lit up, Barbara is going to be away overseas so can’t be involved, do you know of anyone who might like to step up. We will this year be looking to organise Accommodation and Food packages and if we have events throughout the holidays they can go to it will help bring people into the area, these packages will be advertised through ATEED as well. We are looking to hold in Warkworth on the 19th July around 6.30pm a “Parade of Lights” where we will encourage locals from all over to use their imagination and light up anything at all for the parade, cars, bikes, beds or even granny in a wheelchair, it would be amazing if we could have a large contingent from Matakana. The 20th will again have Ice skating, snow, food trucks, amusement’s and the laser light show that night, we had over 4,000 people in Baxter Street last year for the laser light show and it was raining! I hope that we can arrange events throughout the holidays in Matakana, Snell’s, Omaha, Pt Wells and that they don’t conflict with each other but bring visitors in and give them something to do and look at, any help you can give me would be appreciated.
