GREEN SUPPORT: Timaru has adopted the hashtag as its #gigatowntim symbol.

A special treat is in store for people in Stafford St tomorrow.

The Timaru Glee Club will perform at the Strathallan St intersection to promote Gigatown. The traffic lights will be stopped at 9.35am and 9.45am and club members will perform a song about the hashtag.

Gigatown Timaru ambassador Angus Westgarth said nothing like this had been done in Timaru before.

Hashy the hashtag was a bit of a local icon and the performances were a cool way to promote the competition, he said.
