HAPPY HOODIE DAY. It’s a long weekend (yippee!!) and there is lots on so let’s get stuck straight into it.
Let’s kick of with the Youth Week party that is happening on the Hibiscus Coast tomorrow. Youth Fest 08 is being held at the Hibiscus Coast Youth Centre from 2pm with live bands, competitions and an underage dance event through till late. It is a massive festival for youth aged 11 to 18, but it’s open to all age groups.
Rodney Live After a roaring start at Warkworth last week, Rodney Live hits Helensville tonight. Be at the War Memorial Hall from 7pm for your chance to win prizes or for some fantastic local entertainment.
Create Your own Eden This workshop comes to Warkworth on Saturday afternoon 31 May from 2.20 to 4.30 pm. Venue is the Masonic Hall in Baxter Street
Auckland Philharmonic The NZ Chamber Brass are at Centrestage in Orewa Saturday 31st May from 2pm. This is a FREE concert and winds up NZ Music Month for classical buffs.
Tinkers and Traders The caravans will be at Orewa right through Queens Birthday weekend so check out the crafts and entertainment.
Art at the Estuary This exhibition and sale is on over the weekend at the Estuary Art Centre. A little bird told me part of the proceeds from some items will be going to Hospice so wander along and support a good cause.
Warkworth Gamefish Fishing Contest I happened to hear this one on the radio this morning on my way to work. So if fishing is your passion, pleasure or recreation I'm sure your local fishing or sports shop will have the details. It starts today and runs all weekend.
Don't forget there's always the Farmers markets which are well worth a visit. Matakana and Silverdale on Saturdays or Orewa on a Sunday morning. And there are lots of other things happening which I don't know about or haven't had time to mention. For what's happening in your local area have a look at the Community Noticeboard at your local library.
Rodney Libraries will be closed on Monday 2nd June so make sure you get in today or tomorrow to get your reading for over the weekend. If the weather holds I am planning on attacking the hay paddock formerly known as my lawn. If it doesn't, there's plenty of books in my "to read" pile. Have a good one all!
