It will be hard to avoid the jazz in the Wakatipu today as free performances spring up everywhere from Queenstown Gardens and Jacks Point to Arrowtown's Buckingham Green.

It follows a massive day of live performances yesterday and a colourful parade through the streets of Queenstown including many of the visiting and local musicians and dancers.

The Queenstown-based festival is part of a massive weekend of activity in the region.

In Arrowtown today celebrations marking 150 years since the discovery of gold in the area continue with the New Zealand gold panning champs all day and a firing of black powder guns at 12.30pm.

Wanakafest continues in Wanaka with Sunday Funday at Pembroke Park and a 10-hour endurance mountain biking.

Tonight the 2012 Speights Perfect Woman will be named after a day of competition at the Bullock Bar.
