Nelson celebrates 111 days to go
Nelson celebrated 111 days until it hosts its first ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match in unique fashion yesterday.
Nelson is counting down to #cwc15 in unique fashion
To mark the tradition, and celebrate Nelson’s role in #cwc15, Nelsonians were photographed standing on one leg across Nelson yesterday.
If you were in Nelson yesterday and wondering why people were hopping, skipping, or being photographed on one leg – it just means there are 111 days until Nelson hosts its first #cwc15 match when West Indies plays Ireland on 16 February 2015.
Nelson hosts three #cwc15 matches, with Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Scotland and United Arab Emirates also playing in the city. Click here for more information and to get tickets.
