The annual Hastings Blossom Parade began in 1954. It was a huge event for Hastings with visitors from out of town travelling especially to see the magical floats.
People would line the streets, stand on roofs (we can’t imagine that happening now!) all in anticipation at catching a glimpse of the hundreds of floats.
This photo was taken in 1956. Can you tell us the name of the building on the corner and what shop now resides there today?
The winner will receive two tickets to XX at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House.
Terms and conditions: Creative Hastings will require identification before the prize can be released to the winner. Only one entry per person. All entries must be fully completed. The competition closes at 9am Friday 14 September 2012, where one winner will be drawn from the valid entries then notified via email. The judges’ decision is final.
