The sound of sum­mer in the park

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION/NEWS -

Paekakariki In The Park, a cel­e­bra­tion of mu­sic and Paekakariki’s hos­pi­tal­ity, is on this week­end at Camp­bell Park.

The Satur­day fea­tures Lyt­tle­ton Har­bour’s kings of coun­try-folk The East­ern, the in­die folk sounds of Rosy Tin Tea­caddy, 2010 APRA Best Coun­try Song win­ner Matt Lan­g­ley, jaz­z­funksters Pavlova, and acous­tic reg­gae-dub from Kapiti youth band Jomba.

Sun­day sees Paekakariki’s The Fat Ted­dies take cen­tre-stage, host­ing a pic­nic for young fam­i­lies while play­ing folk favourites.

Teddy bears and other friendly folks are es­pe­cially wel­come.

The stage is lo­cated at up­per Camp­bell Park, Welling­ton Rd. Ac­cess is also via The Pa­rade. Sideshows in lower Camp­bell Park on Satur­day in­clude a mini-train, bouncy cas­tle, merry-go-round, slip-n-slide and car­ni­val games.

Food stalls will com­ple­ment the two bar­be­cues for those who fancy a BYO cook-up.

Hangi pre­sales are avail­able from the Paekakariki Cafe 04 292 8860.

Also, don’t for­get your togs for the slip-nslide, and skate­boards/rollerblades/scoot­ers for a ses­sion at the skate park.

Camp­bell Park is a five minute stroll from Paekakariki train sta­tion.

The Satur­day events run from noon till 6pm, and Sun­day noon till 2pm.

If Satur­day’s show is can­celled due to weather, events will be held on Sun­day.
