Cairns Festival Parade 2019
All Competitive squad gymnasts including Diamonds, Opals, Emeralds, Ruby’s and Amethysts are invited to join us for the Cairns Festival Parade on Saturday 24th August.
Our display will involve some gymnasts performing skills on the float and some performing a choreographed routine following behind. Please remember that gymnasts attending Junior States will NOT be performing at this years parade but are encouraged to take part and walk with us.
What to wear: Please wear your Competition leotard and hair, some gymnasts will be required to wear joggers (we will let you know who closer to the day). Please bring a FULL water bottle.
Rehearsal times: We will start rehearsing our display during class from Wednesday 14th August.
FULL REHEARSAL will be Friday 23rd August from 3.45-5.00pm – this is compulsory for all attending the parade.
On the day: We have not yet received final details however from past experience we will meet at Munro Martin Park on Sheridan Street at approximately 4pm with the parade kicking off at 5pm. When we know what number we are we will update you on the time to be there as it can be a very long wait for some of the little ones. They usually have FREE FACE PAINTING which looks amazing but the line up can be long!
Most Important is PICK UP: Please keep an eye on us during the parade as we require ALL gymnasts to be collected from FOGARTY PARK (walkers) and PIER CARPARK (float) IMMEDIATELY AFTER WE HAVE EXITED OFF THE STREET.
How can you help? We will require people to help with decorating the truck at Munroe Martin Park, details for this will be emailed out once we know more. We would appreciate as many people as possible to meet us in the Pier Car park to dismantle the decorations from the truck and a couple of people to load their cars and drop everything back at the gym.
We encourage all of our competitive gymnasts to support this community event which is a fantastic opportunity to promote our amazing club and gymnasts. NOMINATIONS CLOSE: Tuesday 13th August
