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.
