Christmas Street Party

Last night, Main Street was blocked off for 3 hours for the annual Christmas Street Party. This was a great event and thanks go to the Otautau Promotions Group for making it happen. Here are a few pictures from the festivities.

Many got into the Christmas spirit starting with the facepainting booth.

And Santa's elves were serving fresh fruit throughout the evening.

Santa got a surprise kiss from Kelly Cormack at the Santa photo booth where Jo Butterfield was the photographer.

The bouncy slide from the Otautau Toy Library was a big hit and loads of fun.

Mini-carts from the Otautau Sports and Social Club were in demand too.
But because it was such a hot, muggy evening, the highlight for many kids were the antics of the fire brigade. They had a competition to guess how long it would take them to fill up this trough with water. It only took about 38 seconds, and the winner got a free fire extinguisher.
Then kids just wanted to jump in!

But a few minutes later, they turned on the hose and kids came running from all directions.

The presence of local police, fire and ambulance made the whole event feel safe and in good hands.

The Christmas tree decorating contest was won by the Brownies, I believe.
Merry Christmas to all.
