Top five things to do this weekend
TRIMAORI FESTIVAL 2013
Head along to Lake Karapiro Domain on Saturday for a day of whanau-orientated fun and activities. This event is centred on family and being active, so it would be a great family day. This year's event includes the Crossfit Waikato Championships. It sounds hard but fun to watch.
TE AROHA AP&H SHOW
If the TriMaori isn't your kind of elixar, you could head to Boyd Park in Te Aroha for the AP&H show. Some of the entertainment will include Waikato's strongest man competition, truck pull events, cattle champs and much more. It's $5 entry for adults and kids under five are free. Once you've had your fill of all that, take the family to watch the Mokena Geyser erupt. It's quite a sight.
THE WIBBLY WOBBLY WASHING MACHINE
Hamilton author Talia Nelson is celebrating the launch of her third children's book with a family fun event at the Eastern Suburbs Rugby Club in Flagstaff on Sunday. The free event runs from 11am - 1pm and boasts a mini market with craft and food stalls and a raffle. Proceeds from the raffle will be used to buy presents for the K-Mart Christmas Tree.
GYPSY FAIR ORIGINAL
The Gypsy fair is returning to Claudelands this weekend with a long list things to see and do, such as fortune telling, live entertainment and dancers. The list goes on. The fair runs over Saturday and Sunday from 9am-5pm on both days.
SCHOOL OF MEDIA ARTS GRADUATE SHOWCASE
Beginning today, Wintec's media arts students are showing off their best work on campus. Most of the shows are free and open to the public. It's a great chance to see the talented work from some of the future movers and shakers in this world. Showcases include photography, painting and sculpture, digital design and interior design. The Fashion design runway show is ticketed. For a full list of dates and time, check out this website.
