Creek­fest plans take shape

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Plans are well ad­vanced for Creek­fest, which takes place on March 8 at Can­nons Creek Park.

The event, which pro­motes healthy eat­ing, mu­sic and sport, and high­lights the health providers avail­able in Porirua, runs from 10am till 4pm.

It is one of the big­gest healthy food events in New Zealand.

One of the co-or­di­na­tors, Benna Se­vali’i-Si­olo, said Jamoa Jam are lined up as the main act on the big stage.

There would be lo­cal talent ga­lore on the main and smaller stage through­out the day, he said.

Last year, the run-up to Creek­fest was plagued with or­gan­i­sa­tion and fund­ing is­sues and there was even an an­nounce­ment at one point that it was can­celled. De­spite that, more than 100 stall­hold­ers pitched up on the day and 30,000 people at­tended.

Now in its 11th year, the event is over­seen by Health­links and Porirua City Coun­cil.

A big match – the teams and code still to be con­firmed – is planned as the draw­card sports event.

Last year the Porirua Vik­ings and St Ge­orge Drag­ons pre­mier rugby league sides played a pre- sea­son match.
