South City will come alive tomorrow night for the 6th annual street party.

Organised by the community-led organisation South Alive, this year’s event will have a strong Christmas focus, with the event being held a month later than usual.

Community development and operational manager Julz Orr said the event would kick off with the Cook Island drummers outside Subway, followed by the James Hargest Kapa Haka group on the main stage.

A large kids area in Martin Street would have a range of free activities including a bouncy castle and chocolate wheel.

Julz said a must-see attraction was the steampunk teapot racing in the United Video carpark.

To keep all the punters fed there would be plenty of food stalls, including icecream, bakery food, sausages on the bbq, Korean chicken, as well as cupcakes and pupcakes (yes for dogs!).

Stallholders would be selling their wares with headbands, salt lamps, vintage clothing, and bric a brac.

Another popular attraction that was free this year was the photo booth featuring magnets with a Christmas theme.

There would even be a game of street football going on and make sure to look out for the ‘yarn bomb’ car when it arrives.

This was South Alive’s second big event for the year, following on from the ‘Children’s Day’ trolley derby that was held in March.

Julz said the first street party was held to celebrate the Aurora Street lights, and it was so popular the public asked for more.
