Fun to come in the Bay in Feb

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE - STAFF REPORTER

Ti­tahi Bay’s sec­ond beach fes­ti­val is shap­ing up to be a chilled out com­mu­nity event with head­line act Ma Rie.

Held at the beach’s north­ern end on Fe­bru­ary 11, from 1pm till 8pm, it will in­clude mu­sic, food, stalls, ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages - like sack races and a sand­cas­tle com­pe­ti­tion - the ‘Art on the Line’ art com­pe­ti­tion, com­mu­nity group dis­plays and more.

Ma Rie, a Can­nons Creek reg­gae singer of Samoan de­scent, has head­lined for many artists in­clud­ing Spawn­breezie, Daniel Rae Costello and Sav­age. She per­formed at the Samoan Christ­mas in the Park in Apia last year.

Other per­form­ers at the fes­ti­val in­clude Quar­ter Acre Block and rap­per Rory Aldridge – known to­gether as All­go­ods.

Events for the kids will in­clude pony rides, old-fash­ioned games like tug-of-war, snorkelling with Healthy Har­bours Porirua and plant­ing with Ti­tahi Bay Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety.

There will be com­mu­nity dis­plays from Ti­tahi Bay Vol­un­teer Fire Brigade, Ti­tahi Bay Taek­wando Club and Kerry School of Ir­ish Danc­ing.

Stalls will sell food, crafts and ser­vices such as hair-braid­ing and Jam­berry Nails.

An art com­pe­ti­tion will in­vite en­trants to paint, sketch, pho­to­graph or weave.
