2019 TAWA COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS PARADE AND CLUB CHRISTMAS BARBECUE
This year's Tawa Christmas Parade is scheduled for 2pm on Saturday 7 December
The Christmas Parade has been an annual event in Tawa for over 20 years.
The parade's ongoing success always depends on the participation of the many Tawa organisations who continue to support it and the MG Car Club has been a strong supporter since its inception. We want to get as many cars as possible so dress up in some Christmas gear, wind some tinsel around your car and come and have some fun! If you are coming more details can be found HERE
After the parade, Ross and Anne Armstrong have again volunteered to hold the Club barbecue at their home 15 Coates Street Linden. The official start time for the barbecue is 3.00pm, however those who are taking part in the parade are welcome to proceed to the Armstrongs as soon as the parade is over. The club will be providing meat for Ross to incinerate on the barbie (cooking to start at 4.00pm) and Members are asked to bring along salads and desserts as well as the usual liquid refreshments. Please email Ross to let him know that you are coming .
