Friday Night Fever hits Elektra!
UPDATE: Unfortunately due to the wet weather we are experiencing we have had to cancel Elektra which was to be held in King Edward Park, Hawera.
Friday Night Fever will take over Hāwera’s King Edward Park for South Taranaki’s annual fire and light festival, Elektra.
Get the family together to stroll through the Park strewn with lights, groovy disco balls and flower power – for one night only.
We’ll make sure the crowds are well fed with a range of food trucks, entertained by the famous graphic poi and fire shows from Highly Flammable and treated to the musical stylings of Mitch and his Guitar on the main stage.
This family-friendly event has plenty especially for this kids as well. Don’t miss the ‘Glow Zone’, featuring fabulous glow in the dark art by South Taranaki Creative Space and Art with Kerryn Kids. These pieces of artwork were created by our very own tamariki here in South Taranaki. The evening will begin with a circus play zone, where children can learn skills including spinning plates, juggling, hoop, and poi with Circus in a Flash Entertainment.
“We cannot wait to host Elektra again; unfortunately, last year's event was cancelled due to COVID-19. The silver lining is we have had more time to plan an even better event this year!“ says Events coordinator Emma Vennell. "We encourage families to come down and have a picnic tea (or buy something from one of our food trucks) and see what Elektra has to offer.”
Elektra was created to replace the annual fireworks display, which South Taranaki District Council last held in 2016.
Elektra – King Edward Park, Hāwera, Friday 23 September, 6 – 9pm
