Come and celebrate spring with the Parnell Festival of Roses 2012. This free Auckland Council event provides a fun-filled weekend for all to enjoy.
Radio and TV personality Ruud ‘The Bugman’ Kleinpaste will be on hand sharing expert advice on all things gardening and bug related. Don’t miss the chance to get up close and personal with a few of Ruud’s favourite creepy-crawlies whilst hearing from this renowned entomologist.
The stage will come alive with a mix of dance and performance acts, including the Auckland City Brass Band, Johnny Casino and the Gamblers, Latin instrumentalist Ricky de Medeiros and the energetic Samoan Tatau Dance Group.
Kids will be spoilt for choice with flower fairies, balloon twisting and face painting providing endless entertainment, and of course Ruud’s famous bugs.
Another free event brought to you by Auckland Council and funded by Waitemata Local Board – helping to make Auckland the world’s most liveable city.
