Events your city does best

I'm not sure if I'll be heading in to see the Fireworks display in Wellington tonight, though I could walk 10 minutes up the hill from my house and see them, which I might still do.

It got me thinking about other events coming up that I'm thinking of going to, like the Thorndon Fair http://wotzon.com/eventlisting.php?event_id=5003516 Then there's the NZ international arts festival coming up. Hopefully I'll get along to at least one event. http://festival.co.nz/ Is there an event or festival that your town/city does really well? Anything you look forward to getting along to each year?

The Waikato has lots going on. From the top of my head... Hamilton has a really good summer festival at the gardens with everything from Shakespeare to gypsy dancing to jazz... and what about the amazing agricultural fielddays... the River Race day.... the V8s... the Left Bank Festival.. and how many other NZ towns have an outdoor ice-skating rink in the middle of summerr? Morrinsville has an cool community fireworks display every Guy Fawkes Pirongia has it's New Year's raceday which is heaps of fun. Karapiro has the rowing champs at the lake.


....I enjoy these festivals around New Year but they are in my partner's home city of Gisborne....Rhythm and Vines, B & G Camping Festival and Reggaelution.....all outside concerts and in Gisborne in the summer their is no better place to be.....
