The Blackwood Christmas Parade will again take place on Friday, 1st December, as it has for over 35 years.
As has been the case in previous years, the participants in the Parade will assemble on Gulfview Road from 5:00pm. It would be greatly appreciated if vehicles are not parked on Gulfview Road and Waite Street from 5.00 pm.
It is expected that the roads will be closed between approximately 5.00pm and 8pm. Please be aware however that the police control the road closures and not the committee. Police have advised if they deem the area unsafe, they may close the roads earlier.
Please refer to the plan below to confirm road closures that may affect you.
The parade will be commencing at 6:30pm at the corner of Gulfview and Main Roads, and proceed south along Main Road, then turn right into Young Street, finishing at Waite Reserve.
A fair is held after the Parade in Waite Reserve, with food and drinks available for sale, together with children’s rides, entertainment and, of course, Father Christmas. The Fair should be finished by around 9:30pm.
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
