He mihi mahana ki a koutou, E nga mate, haere, haere, haere atu ra. Nau mai haere mai Festival 2013.
Welcome to this year's Festival.
LOST AND FOUND: A electronic car key plus 2 other keys. Email the stallorganiser please.
Wow, what a great Festival, even with a bit of wind. The site layout and the management of the stalls and participants was the best ever. Thanks to those stallholders who sent us thank you gifts and letters. Much appreciated.
The music was really good too and gives us a boost for planning our 30th anniversary next year. Despite contacting The Herald and TV we got no coverage this year after their eager coverage of last year’s cancelled day. Auckland Council did not include us in their Events Calendar of What's On. So a secret squirrel crowd of 60,000 says it all.
We ran a survey and got heaps of feedback on what an amazing experience this event provides. We are not covered in advertising signs, we are not socking the pocket. We are loving the art, music, smiles, food, and fun that our participants, share together at the Festival. Anyone who wants to be part of the crew next year, get in touch.

LATEST FORECAST: A weak high north of NZ is slow moving east. This high is preventing and finally dissolving a rainband in the Tasman Sea. Warm westerlies with some cloud. Maybe a spit of rain in the evening.
Stallholders: There are no last-minute stall sales on the day.
There might be a few drops of rain, but the Festival goes ahead rain or shine. Only if the council parks manager stops us do we have to cancel.
In case it rains, we do not mind if you do not come. You still will be invited the following year, but no refund given.
Saturday will be sunny with some cloud. THERE WILL BE A NORTH WEST WARM WIND OF ABOUT 10 - 15 KNOTS. Keep some weights and pegs ready.
We are looking forward to our crew Junior, Angela, Kelsey Rose, Paul, Ritchie, Sally, Brent, Eme, Loni, Joe, Monique, Anita, Roger, Robyn, Becky, Marjorie, Lisa, Titi, James, Ben, Hannah, Debs, Zorah, Sebastian, Sam, Daniel, Cieran, Kate and Hans getting together again to make it all happen. We are hoping to entice back some oldies but goldies volunteers as well.
Anyone wishing to be part of the crew please get in touch by phone or email or post. Ta Matou Matakite, “Ma te huruhuru, te manu ka rere”
Körero ia rä, ia rä, ia rä. He kona mai.
