Friday Night Fever hits Elektra
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 camping out between the stage and the lantern filled trees, entertained by the famous graphic poi and fire shows, and treated to the musical stylings of Shaun Campbell and Karla Kimi on the main stage.
This family-friendly event has plenty to offer, especially for the kids. Don’t miss the ‘Glow Zone’, featuring fabulous glow in the dark art by South Taranaki Creative Space and Art with Kerryn Kids. These artworks were created by our very own tamariki here in South Taranaki. The evening will begin with roving circus performers where children can learn skills including spinning plates, juggling, hoop, and poi.
“We cannot wait to host Elektra again; unfortunately, last year's event was cancelled due to weather and the previous year due to COVID-19. The silver lining is we have had more time to plan an even better event this year!” says Events Co-ordinator 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 – King Edward Park, Hāwera. Friday 22 September, 6pm – 9pm
