21 Jul Carnival Day
Emirates Melbourne Cup Carnival Day
In April the Stratford Business Association took part in a bidding process to host the ‘People’s Cup’. Along with Auckland and Christchurch, Stratford is one of only three places in New Zealand, and the only provincial town that will host the 2017 Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour.
To celebrate, the Stratford Business Association is planning an Emirates Melbourne Cup Carnival Day to be held on Sunday 6 August.
The Powhiri will begin at 12.30pm, followed by live entertainment (Sonic Delusion) free pony rides, free face painting, free bouncy castle, free games, spot prizes, fashion show, market stalls, food trucks, sausage sizzle, photo opportunities with the Emirates Melbourne Cup, crafts, and a celebrity horse race. The day will conclude approx. 3.30pm.
Head on down and enjoy the day with family and friends.
