New Mardi Gras has extended the deadline for parade registration until Monday 16 February. Board member Liz Dods said parade entries had built up steadily over the past few weeks -“ the message to encourage edgy, creative and out-there floats has definitely been embraced, and we are set for what will be another fabulous event. Awards will be presented to parade floats in a range of categories, including Best Individual Entrant, Best Small Group Entrant and Best Choreographed Group Entrant. Entries registered thus far include John Howard’s Wheel of Misfortune (complete with Amanda Vanstone as assistant) and a choreographed chorus of belly dancers.
