Palmy really is the place to be
You need not travel far. Entertainment is at your backdoor this summer. Palmy is still the place to be! The New Year is still offering a colourful array of exciting events and activities.
The Sounds of Summer Sunday Concerts continue. These afternoon concerts featuring local musicians are a relaxing way to end a weekend. They’re the perfect excuse for a family picnic in the Victoria Esplanade. Remember to bring picnic rugs and chairs. Bring the family down and support our local talent. They continue each Sunday until February 12.
Esplanade Day is a firm favourite for families. The Victoria Esplanade comes alive with a mixture of live entertainment, activities, food and family fun. There will be vibrant performances from a variety of local performers including bands and dance groups. With plenty of stalls and endless entertainment for the little ones you won’t want to miss this exciting, family friendly event! Mark your diaries, it’s on 19 February 19 from 10am – 4pm.
Later in February, there is the spectacular Royal New Zealand Airforce Air Tattoo. The event is held at RNZAF Base Ohakea on February 25 and 26. It features the Black Falcons aerobatics team, RNZAF operational air power and other military aircraft.
Mark your diaries too for the annual Festival of Cultures. Celebrate our city’s cultural diversity at one of Palmerston North’s longest running community events. This is a colourful three-day festival infused with culture, colour, creations and cuisine. A lantern parade will launch the festival on March 3, followed by a programme of entertainment, activities and music.
