Raglan Community House will be running the ‘Snow On The Beach’ festival once again this year following on from the success of our festival last year.

This year should be bigger and better with 10 tons of snow, bouncy castle, Music from RagFM, food and lots more. The event, which coincides with the annual Mid Winter Swim sponsored by Ray White will take place on Saturday 15th June at the Raglan Kopua Domain, just by the boat ramp and is a FREE event for all the family.

Last year’s Snow on the Beach attracted a huge crowd and received very positive feedback. With an extra 3 tons of snow this year the event will hopefully attract more people and we hope it will become an annual event in Raglan.

Raglan Community House has worked closely with Ray White Raglan Real Estate who will also be hosting the annual Mid Winter Swim. The swim will take place at 1pm with judging for best fancy dress etc taking place at 12.30pm.

Entry in the swim is free and open to anyone brave enough to take the plunge into the cold waters of Raglan Harbour. For more information on the Snow on the Beach Festival or the Mid Winter Swim contact Tony at the Raglan Community House on 07 825 8142. You can see more information on the Raglan Community House Facebook page.

Raglan Community House are also looking for volunteers to help us “spread the snow” on Saturday Morning. If you would like to help just turn up with your shovel at 10am at the boat ramp on the Kopua Domain. Dress Warm! For more information contact Tony on 07 825 8142.

In the event of heavy rain the ‘Snow on the Beach’ Festival will be postponed until Saturday 29th June 2013.
