The Invercargill community is well and truely in the Christmas spirit, after another successful South City Street Party.

South Alive community development and operational manager Julz Orr said the beat of the Cook Island drums at the start of the event really set the tone for evening.

“It was a great success, the crowd had a fantastic vibe. The mall was a hive of activity with the extra stallholders present, and over on Martin Street there were hoola hoops and games, and bargains to be had.”

Following the drumming performance was the James Hargest High School kapa haka group followed by ‘The Terrace’ band – all talented young people performing to the crowd.

Julz said that scheduling the party a little later in the calendar year meant the focus was on Christmas, and they were pleased with Santa who joined in on the action.

Another lovely touch to the street party was the choir singing Christmas carols at The Pod, with the only challenge for 2021 was whether to bring them out on the stage, she said.
