A-landers rejoice! Tis the start of Summer. The annual Grey Lynn Festival sounds it all off with a metaphorical gong.
The old Grey Lynn swamp once known as Tukitukimuka will be transformed with the sound of music and celebration by the Grey Lynn Park Festival on Saturday November 17th. This tradition has continued for 23 years and has built up to be a major event on the Auckland Festival calendar. It is a combination of hundreds of handicraft and food stalls, four stages of varied entertainment plus the hope of a fine day which makes for a great fair.
The past few years have been a weather washout, but this year promises to be scorchio with a little cloud – bring your sunscreen.
Make sure you check out the awesome AK Samba band on the main stage at 3pm. Take your camera, then enter the official photo comp to see your pics online (it should be easy to beat the promo pic below).
And keep an eye out for Lita et al dancing hard in bikinis on the hot pink blankie.
