Early warning: Gerringong Christmas Street Parade & Market

Christmas Street Parade 2024 140Preparations are well underway for the biggest event in the Gerringong-Gerroa calendar – the Gerringong Christmas Street Parade & Market.

As the district’s only Christmas street parade, the Rotary Club of Gerringong Sunrise feels an obligation to make each year bigger and better than ever.

This year there will be not one but three pipe bands joining the parade of colourful floats, comic characters and vintage cars.

The Surf Club, sporting clubs, children’s sport groups, dance groups, the Rural Fire Service, the Men’s Shed, Red Cross and many others will all be there. True community spirit will be shown when the victorious Gerringong Lions RLFC use their muscles to assist immobile residents of Mayflower Village to participate in the parade.

Local businesses become involved with parade floats and the Sebel Harbourside Kiama are sponsoring a prize for the best shop window display. Natural Necessity Surf Shop will be holding its traditional fashion parade of the latest summer wear.

Of course the hero of the parade for the children will be Santa and his sleigh!

The market in and around the Town Hall adds to the atmosphere. The organisers of the day, the Rotary Club of Gerringong Sunrise, urge you to come along, and thank Gareth Ward and Kiama Council for their ongoing support of this great community event.

If you are interested in joining Rotary, give Steve Smith a call on 4234 0564 or email super7838@icloud.com

Details: Saturday 19 December, 11am
(market starts at 8am)
