What’s On? Soak'n Sounds & Record Fair

Soak’n Sunday Sounds is on at the Mount Hot Pools.

Good morning, Sunday SunLive readers. The weather has, of course, been a little grim these past few days, and as a result, a couple of today's big events have been cancelled or postponed.

The Walk the Lakes ‘Fire and Ice' 2017 event has been cancelled, with no word yet on when it might take place again.

BOP Regional Council's Happy Harbour Family Fun Day has also been postponed for a fortnight.

However, it looks like the Mount Hot Pools' Soak'n Sunday Sounds is still going ahead.

The event is a chance to unwind and take a soak in the hot pools in the shadow of Mauao, while enjoying some local acoustic music entertainment. Entry is the normal ticket price, with music playing between 7pm and 9pm. Find out more on the event's Facebook page.

The Mount Record Fair is also on today at the Mauao Performing Arts Centre. Early birds can get in at 10am for $10, in order to get their hands on the best vinyls.

Other indoor events today include some Bible discussions, as well as a meeting of the Tauranga UFO & Paranormal Society.

Have a look below, and see if you can find something to tickle your fancy.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
