Check out the photos taken during our 2013 Wrapped in St Marys event – new images added today!

Here’s a taste of what you’ll see:

street art theme

Just so there’s no excuse for not having enough time to come up with ideas and designs, we are announcing next year’s theme early!

The 2014 theme will be (fanfare please!) – SWITCHED ON

The idea is to design and make a wrap for a power pole.  This is the street art component of our Wrapped in St Marys annual event.

Here are some of the 2013 connected entries, just to give you an idea of possibilities:

Size:  1.5 m high (maximum) x 90 cm wide (approximately)

Power poles vary in circumference – the smallest I’ve found is 86 cm, but some are over 100 cm.

The solution:  make your power pole wrap adjustable!

people’s choice award

Visitors to our 2013 event were invited to vote for their favourite power pole wrap, and did so with enthusiasm.

After votes were counted at the end of day 2, the results were extremely close, with only 1 vote between each of the top 3 choices.

And the winner is (drum roll please) – Kelly Farrell of St Marys!

Here is the wrap she created:

Appropriate subject too, since Mt. Elephant is a prominent local landmark!

2013 program

It’s building up to be a wonderful Wrapped in St Marys event this year!

A number of businesses and community organisations are participating – more than in 2012, which is great.

Some have even offered discounts on presentation of the program!

Street art, exibitions, the annual car show and more are on offer.

AND the latest news is that there will be a shuttle bus service around the streets, thanks to Community Transport Services Tasmania.  Great for anyone who isn’t as mobile as they would like to be!

The program also includes details about where to eat, where to stay and even where to go to church on Sunday.

Time to start making plans to come and stay for a great weekend!  And don’t forget your winter woollies …
