Whangarei’s Town Basin and Hātea Loop are becoming the destination of choice for lots of summer events, with 11 groups organising about 40 events between 13 October this year and Easter next year so far.
“It’s proving so popular we are having to do quite a bit of juggling to keep everyone happy, but that’s our aim,” said Council’s acting Venues and Events Manager, Lesley Ashcroft.
The Artisans Markets, every Saturday from Saturday 20 October to Saturday 26 January then fortnightly from Saturday 9 February to Saturday 23 March and one over Easter weekend are a pretty well-established tradition.
“We are also working with the owner of the Night Markets that started last year and with other hospitality providers in town to work out a good schedule for the Night Market.
“The other events organised there and on the Loop during the summer will include our Christmas Tree (due to go up by 30 November), awareness days, fund raisers for charities and fun walks.
