What a weekend! Not just the crowds enjoying the Festival of Cultures with its inaugural national Food Truck Face Off, but Friday night saw Arena’s Pascal Street Stadium packed to the scuppers for Sol3 Mio.
On a smaller scale, Summer Shakespeare launched The Merry Wives of Windsor alfresco in the Esplanade, and a season of musical Sweeney Todd opened in the Abbey Auditorium.
Orientation was in full swing. Yesterday saw International Women’s Day in The Square with its picnic and dancing.
There’s no let up this week either. The circus is coming to town; Boys’ and Girls’ High open their production of Happy Days ; there’s Feilding High School’s production of FAHS War Years; a major dance competition; and the invasion of Feilding for the Celtic Ceilidh by 45 national pipe bands.
With autumn approaching, everyone seems dead set on squeezing every available drop from the last of Manawatu’s vintage summer wine.
