An exuberant bunch of people all ages signed up to sing, dance and act in the production, and all are very excited to show off their talents.

Sylvia Chivers was on hand at the meeting to talk about the Barriere Christmas Light up Parade, saying the parade would be held on Dec.  6, with mustering at 5:30 p.m. at the Employment Centre, and continuing up Barriere Town Road to Fadear Park where the district will hold their annual Tree Lighting event.

Sylvia was excited to tell how wonderful the lights were last year on the parade floats, and that the possibilities are endless for decorating with lights.

Why not join with TV Players, and light up a float and enjoy the fun of participating in the Barriere Christmas Parade.
