Float planned for Mardi Gras

Ettalong's Coastal Twist organisation plans to enter a float in this year's Sydney Mardi Gras Festival.

Coastal Twist board chair Mr Juan Iocco said the float would represent the theme of this year's Coastal Twist festival, Be The Change, while embodying the Mardi Gras theme of What Matters.

Creative director Ms Glitta Supernova said: "Local teens, mums and mums, mums and dads, hairdressers and students to CEOs and barristers are all pitching in."

She said space was being offered by Meals on Wheels in Woy Woy to build the float.

"We have our glue guns and jigsaws out and we are going to use them, creating some fun out of all the hard work required as we build a float, create costumes and music-choreography to boot," Ms Supernova said.

The Naughty Noodle Fun Haus of Ettalong will hold its Bauhaus Funhaus Dance Party in Woy Woy to coincide with the Sydney Mardi Gras Festival which will feature a Coastal Twist float.

Naughty Noodle creative director Ms Glitta Supernova said the dance party would act as a direct connection to Mardi Gras for partygoers, while putting Woy Woy in the limelight.

"Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras has invited the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus and Coastal Twist to be included in their live broadcast for our original, vibrant and inclusive world class parties.

The evening will feature a big screen with all the live action from the Mardi Gras Parade, as well as Sydney DJs Steve Sonius and Annabelle Gasper to the decks.

The Bauhaus Funhaus Dance Party will be held at Woy Woy Leagues Club from 6pm to midnight on February 29.

Tickets are essential.
