Renovations didn't stop Hampden Street School from putted on a huge evening at their annual Twilight Gala. Rachel Reese the Mayor of Nelson was there to officially open the festivities, all in aim of fundraising for the wonderful school.
There was face paint, nail art, Lazer tag, bouncy castles, lil train rides, and old fashion 'smash a plate' games. Kids enjoyed buying Jolly bags, and venturing into the famous Haunted House (for over 8yr olds)
So many people helped out to support the school with parents and teachers, grandparents and friends all getting involved. Z service station was along serving hot Nachos, and Butter Chicken rice.
I enjoyed a plate of Nachos, some yummy carrot cake and cream and old fashion lemonade. Here is a glimpse at the atmosphere on Friday night.
