The Asian Food & Cultural Festival, held on Saturday, November 21, is establishing itself as a crowd favourite in Orewa.
It is the second time that the event has been held on Moana Reserve, providing entertainment, food and activities from cultures all over Asia.
One of the organisers, Sue Chau, says there were less food stalls than last year, due to a clash with another Asian Festival in Auckland city the same day.
However, dragon and lion dancers and a wide range of other entertainers kept the crowd happy.
The event is a fundraiser for Hibiscus House hospice in Red Beach, and they will also be happy, as around $6000 was raised – $2000 more than last year.
