Not to be missed is the Day on the Bay, one of Wellington's best coastal event days in beautiful Island Bay. Starting at 10.00am there’s a bustling street market, Carnevale Italia, fair rides, kids' activities and entertainment to be enjoyed by all.
Chill out on the grass and listen to some of Wellington’s hottest bands and musicians. This year’s lineup includes: Jessie James and The Outlaws, Flowz, Digg, Black Minnaloushe, Eva Prowse, L40 and more!
The unique “Blessing of the Boats” attracts crowds to the coastline to watch the fishing boats put through their paces and blessed for safe carriage, and bountiful catches.
For those around at 11.30, be sure to head to Shorland Park for the unearthing of the Tapu Te Ranga Marae hangi. A taste of local kai not to be missed.
The Day on the Bay is part of the nine-day Island Bay Festival 2013. Check out the festival website for the full programme of activities and more info on Day in the Bay. Any queries, email our Festival Co-ordinator Fran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
