The sound of summer in the park
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.
