Summer Sounds Returns to King Edward Park

Summer Sounds Returns to King Edward Park

Friday, February 12, 2016

What better way to enjoy the fine weather than be treated to free entertainment in Hawera’s stunning premier park?

Summer Sounds will be playing at the stage by the oriental garden in King Edward Park on Sunday 28 February.

After being introduced to the South Taranaki summer events programme in March last year, Summer Sounds makes an earlier return in 2016 to take advantage of the stellar weather we’ve been having.

Entertainment will start at 4pm with local lad Ben Dixon taking the stage, followed by Wanganui’s eight-piece band The Clazzmatic Boogie Orchestra (a huge hit at this year’s Sounds on the Sand in Opunake). Finishing the evening is the feature act, Auckland-based The Mermaids Dance Band.


There will be something for everyone, with rocking tunes, classic hits and current top 40 hits.

South Taranaki District Council events co-ordinator Jody Bloor says she wants to see as many people as possible come along to enjoy the evening’s free entertainment.

“We hope families take the opportunity to have a relaxing evening, taking in the music and the stunning scenery,” says Jody. “Make a night of it and bring along a picnic, or make use of one of the food stalls on offer.”

This event is proudly brought to you by South Taranaki District Council and supported by TSB Community Trust in association with More FM.
