Double banger celebration

The Weiti Festival at the Te Herenga Waka o Orewa Marae, in Silverdale, on Saturday November 4, will be a double celebration.

The free community event will mark both the official opening of the marae and an Eco Fun Day celebrating environmental initiatives on the Coast.

There will be information stalls showcasing the work that local community and environmental groups are doing on the Hibiscus Coast, a sustainable goods mini market and interactive activities that teach people about how they can reduce their environmental footprint.

There will also be fun activities for the children such as face painting, giant bubble fun and hula hoop workshops. A range of food and drinks will be for sale.

The opening of the marae celebration will include a powhiri to welcome people onto the marae, tours of the marae facilities and kapahaka performances.

Entry to the marae grounds is off Tavern Road and parking is limited so locals are encouraged to walk or cycle to the event, which will run from10am to 2pm.

The festival is being organised and supported by the Kaipatiki Project, the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board, and Good Health.
