Oamaru Mail Grand Street Parade organiser Marise Martin is encouraging youth to get involved in next month’s events.
There is a prize of $1000 for the best dressed school or preschool in the Saturday parade.
Mrs Martin said, as well as celebrating Oamaru’s Victorian heritage, the events would also mark women’s suffrage and 150 years of the Oamaru Borough.
The parade begins on Tyne St on November 16 at 11.30am.
If you would like more information about being a part of the parade, contact Marise or Graeme Martin on 434 1200.
