Hastings Blossom Parade 2009

Shrek was a hit, as usual. So too were the foam cannons and of course the Batucada dancer with the skimpy pants.

The public turned out to the annual Blossom Parade in droves on Saturday and they were not disappointed as close to 1000 people danced, waved and cheered through the streets of Hastings…

… The Batucada dance group from Wellington, which is a regular fixture at the parade, set the mood for the first-time Caribbean Steel Band later on.
