Presidents Welcome - 2019/20

 Welcome to our 109th Caroline Bay Carnival

As President of the Caroline Bay Association it is a pleasure to be able to welcome you to our annual carnival, especially to any newcomers to our fantastic event.
As we have for many years, we are once again proud to provide you with a large array of entertainment and activities for you to enjoy over the festive season. This couldn’t be achieved without the hard work and dedication from our volunteers, as well as the new and continued support of our many loyal sponsors. A big thank you to all – we really wouldn’t be here without you.
This years Carnival will be held over a total of 18 days. We will again be providing top class entertainers on the Soundshell for your enjoyment, with some returing artists along with some first timers to the carnival. We again have made a big effort to ensure there is a variety of music, to appeal to all audiences.
To bring us into 2020 we have a $15,000 fireworks display thanks to Pub Charity and our professional fireworks team. This is again a large display, as well as one of the biggest in New Zealand and shouldn’t be missed!
Big thanks to the Timaru District Council also, for their support each year. This is very much appreciated.
So, on behalf of our Association I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Best Wishes for the New Year and I look forward to seeing you all at the carnival.

Allen Martin
