What’s On? Extravaganza Fair

Good morning, sunners, and welcome to Sunday, the last day of the week, and the last day of your weekend... yes, it’s very sad, I know.

The weather’s been pretty warm lately, so make the most of it and get out and about.

MetService has us down for cloud, with a chance of a shower later. But with a high of 27 and a low of 20, it’s going to be hot, so be sure to slap on the sunscreen.

A great outdoor event for the whole family today is the Extravaganza Fair, which is on in Marine Park, Sulphur Point, from 9am to 5pm. The fair offers a unique style of market stalls, arts and craft, food, musical entertainment, circus shows, performers, unique to New Zealand tiny homes, including open homes, as well as kids’ shows and games.

Highlights include the Karl Austin Experience, Ashton Family Circus, Tug of War, Musical Bean Bags, Sack Races, and an open mic from 4pm.

For more details, visit the Extravaganza Fair Facebook page.

Do you think free parking in the CBD on Saturdays will bring more business to retailers?

No it’s going to add to the parking problems
Yes and it should be extended throughout the week
