There’s always something exciting happening in Hawke’s Bay – but remember to base yourself in The Village.

22 Nov

The Village Street Carnival

For one action-packed day we’re closing our roads and taking the Village out onto the street for our biggest day of the year. It’s going to be huge. It’s going to fun. And it’s a party you’d be crazy to miss.

We’ve set the bar high to deliver the best family day out that Hawke’s Bay has ever seen, chock full of events that the whole family will enjoy:

Quality food stalls staffed by our award winning café’s and restaurateurs.
Free rides and bouncy castles for the kids.
A $1,000 Cash Drop at 1pm.
Local DJs, Buskers, Live music – all spinning cool tunes.
Fitness demonstrations and street performances throughout the day.

And our retailers will be on the street with exclusive carnival deals and some incredible bargains.

The only thing missing is you.
