Spring event for youth
Music, marshmallows and good times have been planned for the first Marlborough Spring Fest event.
Planned by young people for their peers, the inaugural Spring Fest 2K17 event takes place on Saturday.
Organised by members of the Marlborough Youth Trust, the event is geared towards youth and is open to all college age students.
The move follows plans by the trust to organise more events for teenagers.
Co-organiser Anthony Hamlin, 17, says the evening’s entertainment will feature a DJ, live music and food trucks will also be on site. ‘‘It’s going to be a good night. ‘‘There’s not that much for teenagers to do in Blenheim, everything seems to be geared towards younger kids.
‘‘This will be a safe place where people can come and have fun, listen to music and just have a really good night,’’ he says.
The cent will be held at the A & P Park on the corner of Alabama and Maxwell roads and will run from 8pm until 10pm.
Tickets cost $2 can be brought from the Marlborough Youth Trust office between 9am and 5 pm Monday to Friday. Some gate sales will also be available. All drinks and refreshments must be bought on site. For further information, contact Ginny on 027 522 2243 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
