Crowds flock to Ki­wiburn

South Waikato News - - OPINION/NEWS -

The an­nual Ki­wiburn fes­ti­val was held in Whaka­maru again this year with close to 600 peo­ple in at­ten­dance.

Ki­wiburn is seeded from Burn­ing Man, an event in the United States that has grown from small be­gin­nings of a few peo­ple burn­ing the ef­figy of a man on Bak­ers Beach, San Fran­cisco in 1986 to the thriv­ing event it has now be­come.

The Ki­wiburn event or­gan­ised by Mark ‘‘ Yon­der­man’’ Stir­ling is now in its eighth con­sec­u­tive year.

South Waikato News went out for the day to see the sights.
