The Artisans Fair in Whangarei has moved to the fabulous new canopied Victoria Bridge by the Town Basin and will be on every Saturday from 10-3pm from October to April and all weekend in the summer holidays.
Along with the well established Saturday Farmers Market, this gives a great excuse for a weekend visit to Whangarei.

Fireshows to Light up Northland this Matariki
The Waipu Show will be part of the Winter@Waipu festival
6pm-7pm 26 June 2010
Waipu Caledonian Park
The Show is seeking sponsorship so the event can be free to Northlanders.
Waipu sponsors so far include Whangarei District Council and Northpine – more are needed, so lets pitch in.
Every winter solstice I used to go to a gathering at Te Henga Beach. We used to rug up, and carry candles and dive into the darkness of the night. Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere is like this – cold and dark with the promise of new life. It is a fantastic thing to do.

Yes, fantatical fotographers Sue Welford and Maggie Wistrand are at it again and the launch date for next year’s calendar – hopefully mid-October – will soon be announced.
