What’s On: Steampunk and horse races

Horse racing is being held at the Tauranga racecourse today. Image: Supplied.

Good Morning SunLive readers and welcome back to the start of the weekend.

I hope everyone is looking after each other out there and is staying safe.

Looking at the weather for the Bay of Plenty today, we have some morning cloud with some possible drizzle, then fine spells.

There will also be some northeast breezes about.

Your high today will be 25 degrees with an overnight low of 18 degrees.

If you are looking for something that will get you out and about today, why not head along to the Greerton Village Vintage, Retro and Steampunk Fayre.

This is their third annual event which shows off all things vintage and retro, with a bit of steampunk thrown in.

There will be vintage, classic, retro and fun vehicles on display in Chadwick Road between Greerton Road and Cameron Road.

Road closures will be in place for this event.

The St.Patrick’s Day races are also being held today at the Tauranga Racecourse.

Racing starts at 10.30am and there will be prizes for the best dressed.
