Coromandel set for 2020 celebrations
Coromandel residents will be waiting for 2020 to come around when the town celebrates their 200th anniversary.
The Coromandel 200 event is tied in with the town’s Illume Festival and a highlight includes a visit of the Royal Navy ship “Coromandel”.
Included in the celebrations are a fireworks display, art exhibitions, food stalls, live acts and fun activities.
Coromandel 200 spokesperson Peter Pritchard says a new exciting event is included amongst the celebrations.
“We are also looking forward to a new event, an 1820s themed ball.
“With all of this to plan, we are seeking support from volunteers.
“We have roles for a variety of volunteer and all help is appreciates. There will be general preparation and setting up duties on the day, along with pre-planning and innovative ideas that will add flavour to the whole community event.”
Peter also encourages stall holders to set up and sell their goods during the community events.
