Softball fanzone in the Square
We encourage the community to get behind this wonderful event and there will be plenty of family fun with mini softball games, business house games and the opportunity to find softball balls placed around the city for finders to win merchandise.
Retailers are encouraged to adopt a team with a winning business display competition and softball parades featuring players, and community groups in cultural dress/flags to support their country.
We hope to get the teams into local schools so students can meet the top junior players from around the world.
Art installations and murals will be encouraged to add vibrancy into the tournament.
Palmerston North has a tradition of painting rocks to support events and we will run events around the city and community locations creating cultural and softball themed rocks to engage locals and the community.
