Masked Parade theme announced


A record of 111 entries flooded in during the annual Masked Parade theme competition but only one was picked.

Jean Langbridge submitted the winning theme ‘Flights of Fancy’ and will get the opportunity to lead the iconic Nelson parade.

The Nelson Arts Festival say the theme could encompass a wide range of ideas, “From dreams and dragons, birds and planes, from Jean Batten to Salvador Dali, let your imagination soar.”

This year’s Masked Parade is being held at the start of Labour weekend on Friday, October 21 and enrolments are open now.
