Sun shines on Spring Fling


The first day of spring was a stun­ning morn­ing to launch the 2019 Spring Fling at Tani­wha Daf­fodils.

Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay mayor Alex Walker of­fi­cially launched the Spring Fling event on the open­ing morn­ing of Tani­wha Daf­fodils’ sea­son, be­fore guests wan­dered the daf­fodils and en­joyed a cof­fee in sun.

Guests in­cluded the new gen­eral man­ager of Hawke’s Bay Tourism, Hamish Sax­ton, and Cen­tral Hawke’s Bay Tourism co-or­di­na­tor Anna Molly Bald­win, who man­ages the Spring Fling, as well as spe­cial guests from CHB Dis­trict Coun­cil, Spring Fling event man­agers and lo­cal tourism op­er­a­tors all en­joy­ing a gor­geous morn­ing at Tani­wha.

The open­ing morn­ing of Tani­wha Daf­fodils was very busy, Anna says, with many fam­i­lies out celebratin­g Father’s Day.

The Spring Fling runs over the next nine weeks, with a wide range of events celebratin­g the spring sea­son in CHB.

Four events have sold out al­ready (Wild­food, Whisky and Wine and all three Gwavas events) and tick­ets are sell­ing well for the re­main­ing events, with more than half of the Home­stead Trail tick­ets sold. There are some free fam­ily events in the pro­gramme which are also at­tract­ing a lot of at­ten­tion. It will be a busy few months for CHB.

The first day of spring was stun­ning for the Spring Fling launch.
