Join us for the first-ever Gore District Advent Calendar event.
The uncertainty around COVID-19 and events has forced the Council to make the difficult decision not to hold this year's Christmas Carnival and Santa Parade.
However, that doesn't mean we can't still celebrate the festive season in style!
Each day from Wednesday 1 December to Friday 24 December, we will be unveiling a different competition, puzzle or retailer offer through our Facebook event page, Antenno and Cave FM.
The calendar is for everyone of all ages - you don't have to be a child to participate or win prizes. Plus, we have some awesome retailers and activity providers on board to help with your Christmas shopping and holidays.
Additionally, there will be two major competitions for the Best Dress Residence and Best Dressed Business. By residence, we mean your house, flat, unit - wherever you call home. Get your flatmates, your family together and get creative.
The winner of each will be determined by online voting. The Best Decorated Residence winner will receive a scenic flight over Gore for up to four people, to the value of $500.00, thanks to High Country Helicopters.
Hokonui Radio, the sponsor for Best Business Float, have also transferred its prize for the Best Decorated Business, with a $600.00 one-week advertising package up for grabs.
We have also been in close contact with Santa's team, to make sure he can still safely visit us with smaller, localised visits.
Follow our Facebook event page, download Antenno or listen to Cave FM daily to make sure you don't miss out!
