WORLD RECORDS HIT FOR SIX ON BRADMAN OVAL
We did it! In one of the most magical days anyone is likely to experience, 2115 umbrellas were raised for 10 minutes to form the biggest ever umbrella mosaic.
This was followed by a 5 minute dance (the Hokey Pokey) in an attempt on the
Largest Umbrella Dance record.
With at least three helicopters overhead (incl Nine & Ten TV News and
Peter Clisdell from the Berrima Aero Club), the world was watching the NSW southern highlands town of Bowral welcome Mary Poppins back to her spiritual birthplace around 100 years ago.
Here is the photographic proof!

An estimated 500 stayed or returned for the outdoor cinema screening of Disney's 1964 movie Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews and Dick van Dyke. And many more turned up for the spectacular fireworks display sponsored by Mittagong McDonalds and Tourism Southern Highlands.
Congratulations to everyone involved!

SHYAC is also producing an official souvenir poster for sale as a fundraiser.
So watch out for that soon.
Not only will it be printed in high resolution on quality paper but you will be able
to zoom in to find your own umbrella and have it printed as an inset enlargement
beside the aerial photo.
If you were not a participant but would like to buy a poster email us
