Again, so much on around Tauranga tomorrow Saturday 23rd March 2019. You’re spoilt for choice as ARTbop’s only mentioning a tiny, tiny taste of what’s going on. And, over in Cambridge that quintessentially “English” Waikato provincial town they’re rocking through their Autumn Festival…
Before I share tomorrow’s fun and excitement I want to say how emotionally moved I was by the community support evident at the Tauranga Mosque today. Last Friday afternoon I was down at the Historic Village when members of the local Multi-cultural Society – people I know – were getting ready for their event which will now take place tomorrow Saturday 23rd March 2019 starting at 10am. I’m sharing these photos because I suspect the same amount of organisation and energy was required again this afternoon.
It will be a magic day at the MULTI-CULTURAL FESTIVAL AT THE HISTORIC VILLAGEAnd I checked why the Society had hired the stage in: it has a smooth floor for dancing. The deck in front of the Kollective building is just that decking.
The sealed carpark area outside Our Place and adjacent to the Tauranga City Library is going to rock tomorrow it’s Food for Thought: Rescued Food Festival also from 10am. Once again it’s good to see and appreciate the effort and hard work which goes into “fun”. If you show up here ARTbop also wishes you a safe and magic day. P.S. Your gazebo(s) look amazing.ALSO GOING ON:
The Zee Market at the Greerton Village Hall from 10am. This is another wonderful event showcasing local, original art, art craft and artisan products.
AND IF YOU’RE OVER AT THE MOUNT AROUND NOON – IT’S THE WEST’S VERSION OF HOLI A TRADITIONAL, COLOURED POWDER THROWING CELEBRATION OF FORGIVENESS AND NEW STARTS. HOW APPROPRIATE IS THAT!
WHERE EVER YOU ARE TOMORROW AROUND THE BAY OF PLENTY BE SAFE AND HAPPY AND ENJOY!
