Arts, Crafts and fun for the whole family

One of the most anticipated events on the South Taranaki calendar is back again this year, just in time for Christmas.

Arts in the Park, the district’s biggest arts and crafts market day, is coming back to King Edward Park on Saturday 3 December and it’s the perfect place to pick up some unique Christmas gifts.

“This is always such a well-supported event, the public love seeing what’s on offer. It’s great to be able to see the artworks being created and the variety of things available,” says Jody Bloor, event co-ordinator. “It’s truly a family day out with activities and entertainment for young and the young at heart!”

This year, REACT (the Rangiwahia Environmental Arts Centre Trust) will be entertaining the kids with a ‘Blooming Gorgeous’ art project creating oversized flowers and plants. There’s plenty to keep children entertained:face painting, pony rides, as well as a merry-go-round and bouncy castle.

Performances will be held throughout the day on the entertainment stage. Don’t miss ‘Glorybox & Friends’ with well-known local Celine Filbee.

“A wide variety of food stalls will be scattered throughout the Park,” says Jody. “Or, you could always pack a picnic for the family and enjoy the upbeat atmosphere of the day.”

The event will be held on Saturday 3 December in the Park, but if the weather is not suitable it will held indoors to TSB Hub.

Book it in your diaries now – ARTS IN THE PARK, Saturday 3 December, 10am – 3pm, King Edward Park (or TSB Hub if the weather is bad).
