Sat, June 29, 5-7pm. FREE. Come dressed to glow in the dark and join us for the SPARKLE PARADE as we form a glittering trail from The Oval (off Hudson Bay Road) down to Catalina Bay.
Enjoy hot beverages, pick up some glow sticks, bright toys and LED lights – $5 per pack – and go on a glittering walk down to and around Catalina Bay to enjoy lively music, food, and a Glow Circus Zone offering fun with illuminated poi, hoops and juggling balls.
The Sparkle Parade is all about you getting involved – you ARE the parade. So come dressed in your best ‘glow in the dark’ sparkly outfit and you could win prizes – hampers from Ryman Healthcare, one of four whizzy LED-lit umbrellas – like the one in the video above – or a super backpack plus a $50-off voucher for your next travel booking at Hobsonville Point House of Travel.
There’ll be food trucks and performances from the Hobsonville Point Secondary School’s kapa haka group and the Hobsonville Choir. PLUS music from The G Strings and Omega Levine. Delicious food options at the end of the parade will include dumplings, hot dogs, hamburgers, gelato and homemade baking from our lovely Hobsonville Point Mums! And the kids will love the the Glow Circus Play Zone, staged by the crew from Highly Flammable, where they can play with LED-lit hula hoops, poi, juggling balls and more.
