Its all about children:An attraction for the Feilding Christmas parade is the inclusion of many schools and preschools and the number of happy children involved on the floats. Red cars: Vintage vehicles decorated in a Christmas theme are always a popular addition to the Feilding Christmas parade. A programme that will entertain all ages and leave people feeling happy is the aim of Feilding Christmas Carnival programme organiser Raewyn Loader. Its always a rather fluid programme and times are only approximate, Mrs Loader said. We have a great community full of talented people from which to choose a varied programme on Sunday. The Carnival is a community affair run by Feilding Promotion and a team of volunteers which attracts thousands of people from across a wide district. It spells Christmas for many people, especially the young and those who are young at heart. Two performance stages run with simultaneous programmes all day, in Fergusson St and in Manchester Square, keeping the crowds of shoppers entertained from 10.30am until the parade at 2pm. The clocktower programme continues after the par- ade is finished. Train trips are being run by Feilding Steam Rail, although not in a steam train this year. The train departs from Palmerston North at 11.45am to bring passengers to Feilding and while they are enjoying the highlights of Feilding, including the parade at 2pm, the train will give rides to Rangitawa, north of Halcombe, for just $5 a head. Bookings are being taken at Feilding Information Centre as seats are limited. The programme starts at the clocktower at 10.30am with Olly Carrodus and Jesse Mackail, a guitar duo who wowed the crowds on Rural Day, winning the talent quest. They will be appearing again to conclude the clocktower programme at 4pm. At 11am a short devotional service and concert will be led by a combined churches youth band. This will be followed by Magic Man a Whanganui magician who will astound you with his sleight of hand. He will also perform on the Fergusson St stage at 1.30pm. Feilding Brass always turn on a stirring perform- ance and at noon on Sunday, two 12-piece combinations of bandspeople will perform, one on each of the stages. They will then combine to lead the parade. There are five bands on one or other of the stages during the day, interspersed with Feilding Young Talent singers, Lytton Street Kapa Haka and national champion Jump Jam groups, marching team the Phoenix Angels, and Feilding RWC Winner Mizz Japan, who is due to perform at the Clocktower stage at 1.40pm. In one of his last official duties as mayor, newly elected MP for Manawatu Ian McKelvie will declare the refurbished Kimbolton Rd open, immediately before joining the parade at Manfeild Park at 2pm. The prizegiving for the winning floats will be held at the Clocktower after the parade, which is expected to be about 4pm.
