16 November 2004
Hoon Hay Park on Mathers Road is the place to be on Saturday, 20 November, whether you are a local resident or visiting from other suburbs.
The Community Fiesta, from 11am to 3pm, is a free event aimed at families and young people. It is organised by the Christchurch City Council along with a variety of local organisation and with funding from the Council’s Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board.
There will be a variety of on-stage entertainment, including groups such as Chickenyard, Avia Tour, Blackmarket Art and Disarm, while local cultural groups will perform dances and songs.
Have a go at giant sumo wrestling and shoot some hoops with members of the Canterbury Rams basketball team. For younger children there will be workshops in kite making, soap carving and flax weaving, a bouncy castle, face painting and much more, all free.
Plan to stay for lunch as there will be plenty to choose from amongst the many food stalls. Take a break from the activity, sit back to enjoy lunch while watching the talented youth and special guests performing.
If wet, the event will be held on Saturday, 27 November.
